    Curious if anybody else has ran into this. I live on Back Country Roads and my traction control seems to be engaging when I'm going around "sharpish" corners that it used to not engage before my lift and bigger tires. I am in full control around the corners and I'm traveling at relatively normal speed. Curious if the bigger tires are sending a difference signal to the sensors. Maybe it's reading a different wheel speed?

    It is relatively unsafe when it engauges, slowing me down in the apex of the corner and me losing slight steering wheel control when the traction control applies the brakes.

    I believe I have experienced the same issue. It's a very weird feeling as if I'm over-steering on a turn. I have not lifted my rig yet but I do have
    T/A KO2 275/70R17 but that's the only change. This also happened on a downhill slick right turn up in Yosemite this past weekend which made me it was the traction control (TC) system (I was not in 4WD at the time). Wondering, if I turn off the TC if the issue go away? But like you said, it feels somewhat dangerous.
