Ive run stock 19's out back (to use tires up) with 265/35/18's up front. No issues... something else is going on.

This is with dsc off.

So I think this question is turning into why are these wheels and adapters throwing my wheel speed sensors? How do front wheel speed sensors work? Do stock lugs have to brush against something inside front hubs? If my adapter bolts were too long I believe Id hear them. But is it possible they are too short? Even though they are the same thread length as my stock ones exactly. What works with the stock wheel speed sensors??! Ive pulled them and cleaned them as well.

Dunno, you can easily run longer lug bolts (like 25 mm stock to 30mm) without hitting anything. Iím pretty sure thatís not your problem. You almost have to have something sensing a rotational difference front to rear. A difference port to starboard would activate the tyre pressure monitor.

I'm running TE37's 18x9.5 with 265/35 squared. Haven't had any problems. I've also ran 255 front 275 rear on track and never had any problems.

Then I am at an absolute loss. The moment I put on my stocks I know I will have no issues. Are te37 SLs too damn lightweight for the car to understand?!? Ive run so many wheel and tire variations and Ive had so many buddies of mine run adapters will no issues.

How is it putting on a damn wheel can instantly f*** both wheel speed sensors? Its not like something damaged them because once stocks are on codes go out instantly. I donít even have to drive.

What's your error code? Just quickly ran to e90post and I think those are the stock specs for the front, you should be ok from a size pov assuming your offset is ET25. Could be your DSC is just not working? If you have the reader, see if you can reset it and/or do a 12V reset on your car after putting the TE37's on and go for a drive to see if it'll reset itself?

Yeah I doubt it is. I've seen people run 18x9 18x11 on track with no issues or codes.

Ive run the wheels with both a 15mm adapter that put them at et25 and currently a 20mm that puts them at et20. Wheels fit fine. Ive cleared the codes multiple times and they keep coming back instantly with no additional driving. I disconnected battery once but suppose I can try again.
One thing Is that My alignment is off rn which is throwing my steering angle sensor so I currently had dsc,smg, ebrake, and tpms lights on. They are all from the alignment so I was going to get another once wheels were fitted. I canít imagine this giving me issues with different wheels though because that alignment was set up on my enkeis which were 18x10 et25 and then switching to stock 19 fronts nothing changed. So I cant imagine the car simply isnít adjusting itself.
