    Hey guys, ive been searching on here for awhile now looking for a thread about this so i didnt have to ask but couldnt find much, but anyways i have the 3" revtek spacer lift on my truck with the 285's not sure the width but they slightly rub against my uca's and everytime i take a turn going about 30 mph my traction control kicks in and makes that awful sound and sends me all over the place, has anyone experienced this? do i get wheel spacers or new uca's i really dont want new rims so just looking for another way around it, thanks for the help fella's!

    VSC is kicking in not traction control. With some searching you will find out that you have to get the VSC system reset when you change the tire size so the system learns the new tires.

    i havent heard of anyone having issues with the recalibration, must be a moron to get it wrong, someone on here even said they were able to reset it themselves
