Default Will the e46 dsc not accept a 275/35 rear and 265/35 front?!?

Hey guys, so I posted recently about my smg dropping me into neutral and after putting on stock wheels I learned my problem lied in my new te37s. I ran stocks and then tonight just put back on the te37s and the issue came back. I can run my rears with no issues but once fronts come on boom. I had a guy tell me the tires could be the issue. My question is, is it possible that running a 275/35 rear and a 265/35 front throwing off my dsc and giving me problems? I know 275/35 square is common. Other wise a 30 rear profile and 35 front. Is a 35 profile square but with different tires giving me problems?

I am running adapters( I know im not crazy about it either but car is weekend cruiser if that) and I went with a very high quality brand. It came with its own mounting hardware. I canít imagine these interfering with anything as itís essentially just a spacer which Iíve run before.
Any thoughts are appreciated!

Edit: I just hooked up my reader and both front wheel speed sensors are throwing codes!

So if car is throwing wheel speed sensor codes my question is why are these causing it?!

The 10Ē rim is at the limit, especially up front, and not knowing the offsets I would say 265x35x18ís would be tight but okay up front and fine in the rear if you want the square setup. That would give you a little space if you are using coil overs. Add 2 to 3 degrees of negative camber and it should be sweet.

You should not be having code issues running a square setup.

Iíve run a square setup (track) and a staggered setup (street) with and without spacers with no issues. Iíve also run a taller rear tyre with no issues. It has to be your ďadapterĒ or a vibration that the sensor doesnít like.

This is the second set of adapters ive tried on. There is absolutely no movement on them. I pulled front sensor to see and it doesnt appear as though the bolts are too long

It must be above my pay grade. If youíre running anywhere close to the same circumference tyre front and rear you should never get a wheel speed code. My understanding is that you would only get this if there were enough difference to upset your computers. Will you throw the code with your DSC off?
