Max difference between front and rear
Does anybody know what the maximum difference is that is allowed between front and rear tyresizes?
At the moment I have 225/40R18 front and 255/35R18 rear, a difference in circumference (is that the correct word?) and speed ofcourse of 0.16 %
For my winter tyres I would like to go to a somewhat smaller size, 215/45R18 front and 235/40R18 rear. Now the difference is 0.92 %, a bit more.
Does anybody know if the ESP accepts that, so what the maximum difference is between front and rear that it allows without that it engages or gives an error code?
