Ever since I got my 17's my ABS light goes on occasionally. I could never understand why but didn't do anything about it but lately I've noticed that when the light does come on it feels as if my ABS doesn't work. I'm too scared to get it checked out in case it may be BIG bucks!!! :(

Just a thought but...
New 17" rims = new wheel bolts maybe?
Longer wheel bolts on the front especially might press the ABS ring against the sensor = dead/damaged sensor when it rubs the front off it.

Easy to check.

Undo one wheel bolt, look into the hole and look for a tell tale witness of the circle left from the bolts end rotating against the trigger wheel.

regards
Bill
