Was just wondering what if any the consequences would be of running a pair of 205/55's and a pair of 205/60's. Friend told me it may mess with the ABS or speedometer.
Hoping it wont be long term but really need a pair and these are in my price range (free) . If nothing bad will happen which should be where ? Thanks in advance for any info)
As long the two fronts are the same size, and the two rears are the same size, you should be ok.
Any tire that isn't factory size is going to throw off the speedo anyway.
- Your not-so-local, untrained, uncertified, backyard mechanic. But my @!#$ runs
Those two sizes are 3/4 " differance in diameter. thats 26 revs per mile. more than a 1/4" differance will usually cause your ABS to malfunction. if you have a low tire warning system it will cause it to go nuts. You spedo will be close enough to not be a problem.
Thanks for the info...curious to what will happen with the ABS...currently i have none due to a bad rear sensor/bearing but was planning on changing that this weekend.
It will set a code because it thinks you have a bad senson. It will drive the same as it does with your current bad sensor.
