    I have a 2009 Tacoma DC with a 3 inch lift and 285/75/16, and when I take a corner at moderate speeds the outside wheel brake pulses to slow down the rotation. Has anybody experienced issues with the wheel speed sensors and oversize tires?

    maybe you should take your traction control off and give it a try if you haven't tried that

    Cant turn the Traction off in the f-ing 09's. as soon as you go over 25 it kicks in even after you pushed the button to turn it off. Also if the vehicle is turning, or otherwise not going straight, the vehicle will apply braking or prevent acceleration until the vehicle thinks its back on track. I've been to the dealer to find out how the hell im supposed to do donuts in the parkinglots with out the truck flipping out on me... They said it cant be turned off untill your in 4-hi, or 4 low. i forget now... Maybe they lied cause they didnt know, but i have been unsuccessful in trying to turn the f-er off.

    I've had my lift 3 months now and the vsc has engaged in a corner only two times. Both times going about 45mph around a 35mph curve. I've heard that the vsc needs to be re-calibrated after lift and tires(i have 3" with 285/70/17) but I have not heard if anyone has had any success with getting the dealership to do it. I haven't talked to the dealership about it yet.

    I am discussing with the dealer to see if they will adjust the VSC system and re-calibrate the speedometer. It is not looking very likely that the dealer will touch the system.

    The dealer doesn't know what he is talking about. With the vehicle stopped, press and hold the VSC off button for about 5 seconds. TRAC, VSC, and ALSD will all turn off and not come back on until you either hit the button again or turn the truck off. If you just press the button, you get ALSD on, TRAC off, until you get up to around 30 MPH, then TRAC comes back on. That is in the owner's manual. Also, TRAC/VSC is "on" in 4hi and you have to go through the same process to turn it off. That is not so clear in the manual, but that is how it works. Turning TRAC completely off in 2wd or 4hi will result in NO traction control,brake modulation, or throttle interference, so you can cut donuts like a mad man.
