Traction Control question. 2010/w 3" lift and oversize tires.

I have a 2010 that came with 3" lift and oversized tires.

The biggest complaint I have is that driving on a moderately windy road, the traction control comes on rather randomly. Now if you're expecting it, it's not that bad. But, I would *think* that doing the speed limit or less and driving smoothly should *not* cause it to come on. But it does.

As an example, I can take 10 similar right hand corners...on the 11th, TC comes on. If I repeat the experiment, the TC might come on in the 1st or any other. Or it might not.

Tires are all correctly inflated. I don't know for sure about the alignment (but it tracks well).

Anyone have an idea what the problem could be?

P.S. I should add that road conditions are dry and "normal" ie; nothing that should cause it to come on.

Wierd. You guys are making me question my goal. I have a bone stock basic 2wd 2010 Taco regular cab and I was thinking about the ReadyLift 3" with maybe 31's... I would be interested in what is causing this too.

I believe you need to have the speed sensors recalibrate at the stealership, something along those lines.

It's a pretty strange thing but i have to say, I'm surprised this even needs to be done. Seems like the system could be adaptive. Oh well.

I'll post up when i do it/get it done and let you all know if it works. Be awesome if it does.

Well it is adaptive. It learns the tires you have on when it first comes to life and stores the parameters. It also adjusts as the tires wear down but when you drastically change the tire size it gets confused. What would be nice a a reset button in the glove box so you can avoid going to the dealer.

That was where I was going. I mean think about it. Every once and a while, you get new tires. Some might be taller or wider or smaller. I don't about you, but I don't get mine from a dealer...why'd I want to go back to get the VSC reset every time I do that?

Had the VSC reset today. Jury is still out. I drove it on a road that should exacerbate the problem. I still experience the problem on some right turns but is definitely better than it was. Not perfect but better.

i'm running a 3" and 35s w/o this issue. seems to be very hit or miss on who it happens to and who it doesnt. i went from 32s to 33s to 35s and it has never become a problem and has only gone off in wet traction situations that i assume that it would.
