I have a 2009 4X4 Access cab with 16k miles. I just purchased General Grabbers in 265-70-16 to replace the factory tires that were 245-75-16.
Today I noticed when I was at hwy speeds (80mph) and tried to accelerate my traction control light flashed and the truck limited the power thinking I was losing traction.
It may be a sensor or something however it seems weird the traction control system is acting up one day after buying new tires. The Grabbers are a little wider however the outside diameter is basically the same as the 245-75s.
Has anyone else had this issue after changing tires and if so can the traction control system be somehow calibrated. The tires are great and I like the "look" of the Grabbers however the truck just feels weird now. It kind of sways when driving and the noise is a little louder at speed due to the A/T tread pattern. I guess I can live with it however the truck now acts like it wants to limit my speed with the motor stalling due to the built in safety controls activating.
Thanks for any advice as the dealer was not much help....they did schedule an appointment to look at it however that is two weeks from now.
