if it is significant difference-- it will set of Stabilitrack/ABS.
what happens is that the new tires are bigger...
over a certain distance the bigger tires spin LESS- than the smaller/worn tires..
the system detects that the tires ARE NOT spinning at equal rotations.... and the system thinks the wheels have lost contact with the ground- and it activates the systems to regain traction... and get the wheels spinning at the same rate.
