Reprogramming the Speedo is to correct tire size variances

Reprogramming the ABS, is to correct for Wheel weight
the larger and heavier wheel will effect ABS as it is spinning, with a larger outer gyroscope effect that is further away from the centerline of the pilot hub assembly

I can tell you first hand,[on my Avalanche] there is a difference in braking going from a 17 to a 20 with near exact outer tire diameter, but heavier wheel weight

Well the wait is over.  They in my opinion look amazing, now I gotta go take a ride for the first time with them.  I will take the Tek in on monday to let them reprogram the ABS for the new wheel size.

They look really good. The tires look like 40s. Did you change your mind and get 40s? If you look at mine I have a thinner sidewall and they are 35s. Guess its just the tire brand.

Brian,

Those rims and wheels look great,  I think your nex step shuld be to Paint your Drums and Calipers Yellow to match the Tek, that would look sweet behind the black rims

Dude, I was just thinking about painting them yellow.  If not I'll stick with black.   Great minds must think alike.

The wheels do stick out further that the OEM wheels- but keep in mind that it is a 8.5 inch wide rim vs 7.5 OEM.  The wheels appear to be about 1/4 inch from the top of the wheel well cladding, but as you move downward and the cladding starts turning inward, it appears out farther.  On another note, I put the first scratch in the wheels.  Clipped a high curb turning into a parking lot. :angry:

AH MAN. only had the wheels for 2 seconds. Better put the OEMs back on =). Keep in mind when you have these wheels on you have to be very open while driving. Even little bumps or dips you may have ran over before you cant do that anymore. You will realize you will bottom out and hit hard on your rim. I'm very glad I have nice roads around my area and still going good after 7 months. Be careful out there.

Okay, I just returned from the dealership.  It looks like there is no software update for the Aztek with any wheel larger than 18 inch.  The tech called into GM tech support, and they told them that if there was an issue, then they would have to write a program for the Aztek.  So the results of our road test with the GM Service Tech (Chas- has done most of the service on my Tek).
- ABS working okay
- Wheel Speed Sensors exactly accurate sensing speed compared to speedo up to 45 MPH ( city streets, we couldn't really open her up), but Tech2 and speedo both read 45MPH and every point less than that.
- New tires grab darn good in the rain, panic braking was done mainly without ABS needing to kick in.
- No trouble codes listing on the Tech2 while driving, and performing multiple hard stops
- Dealership performed this service gratis- nice

And to finish this off with a funny, but almost not funny story:

As the Tech and I are driving around, we stop at a stop sign.  All of a sudden we hear what sounds like locked brakes skidding
( keep in mind that it is raining and the ground is wet), I turn around and Chas ( who's driving ) looks in the mirror and we both see a Hyundai Sonata lock up the brakes and is skidding almost sideways towards the back of my Tek.  Well, Fortunately there was no traffic coming, and we were both observant, so he quickly took off and avoided the collision.

The Tech 2 and the spedo will read the same as it is reading the wheels
only true way would be tech2 or speedo Vs radar

You may notice the ABS issues at low speed [under 20mph] when moderate braking to a stop
watch out for Nurse Rachet

Other than a character in a movie?

The noise you get when ABS comes into play> a rachet or buzzing sound in the brakes

No, I haven't had any issues so far with the ABS- no ratcheting at all.  In fact, even when out in the rain and performing hard stops, the tires grabbed so well that the ABS was barely even kicking in.  All the while with the Tech 2 connected monitoring its activity for issues.  None

Well, now the wheels have been on for a couple of weeks, still only have one scratch on them since their first day,  and all is well.  I am very happy with how the Tek performs now- it is ike I'm driving a sports car with how well she corners.  Yes the ride is hard, but not as hard as I initially feared it would be.

Ps I added a few more photos to my photo gallery with side and corner shots to show how the wheels look, due to them being wider than stock.

Hey 97drexelgrad they look pretty good. Hopefully you wont be kicking up too many rocks on turns because you will surely be scratching up the side of the doors. I guess the guy a the shop did know what they were talking about when they said it would only stick out about 1/4 inch or so. take it easy.
