Default Slip light

I put Rota P45R's on my 2007 350z and randomly the slip light flashes and I don't get any power. This also happened when I had a tune up done on my car and they rotated my front wheels to the back. I know my tires aren't losing grip. Does this happen to anyone else? How do I fix it?

how much stupidity do we have to deal with?


You realize that we have staggered wheels for a reason right? (probably not). You can't rotate your tires and the shop who did that you should not go back to.

On a serious note, what tires and wheel sizes/widths do you have?

Why would you rotate your front wheels to the back?

The z is supposed to have staggering tires meaning the larger are in back. What size tires are on your rear and front wheels?

Yes, I know they are staggered. When I got home, I rotated the wheels back to where they were supposed to be.

Current tire size is 225/50/17 front and 245/45/17 rear.

wtf? Did you ever read your owner's manual? Your not suppose to rotate the tires. A tune up shouldn't interfere with the slip light coming on. Also, these cars get really agitated when you use wheels that aren't within the stock perimeters.

I know that. I didn't rotate them.

Does anyone actually know why it does this?

225/50/17 Overall Diameter: 25.86 in

245/45/17 Overall Diameter: 25.68 in

Your back tires are spinning faster than your front tires due to the smaller size.

It wont take much at all for the traction control to engage.

Put the stock wheels back on (correctly) if you still have them to see if anything changes.

Finally a good answer! Ok, I'll change the rear tire size. Thanks!

You just bought the rears correct?

The fronts are too big. Stock is 225/45 not 225/50

Negative, I bought all four. I have 225/50/17 in the front and 245/45/17 in the rear. I thought that the diameter was the same, but I was off by a bit. I am off by about 2/10ths of an inch.

Now that I know that, it's not a big deal. I'll just drive with the traction control off until I get the correct sizes tires.


Which may be a while, cause the Army doesn't pay for ****.

It doesn't take much to throw off the z and traction control...

I would drive with vdc off and hopefully then there will be no issue. But iwouldd change the front tire size back to 45 asap

It's like a 3% difference isn't it? OP, I believe stock 17's are 225/50 and 235/50. Just grab a pair of 235/50 for the back and everything should be peachy.
