Default Bigger tires in back VS ABS/4 Bigger tires

Will I just get an abs light and it won't work or is it worse?

With all four tire I'd like to go 235/60/15 but don't know the steelie rim width. Here'* the chart. Stock on my car now is the top row 215/65/15. These are Dayton Daytona SR

Sorry, can't get the spacing right. It is different in the edit box than final display

Size / lettering / rim width / diameter / price

P215/65R15 95S RWL 6.0-7.5 (6.5) 26.0 $73.00
P215/70R15 97S RWL 5.5-7.0 (6.5) 26.9 $71.00
P235/60R15 98S RWL 6.5-8.5 (7.0) 26.1 $77.00


95 plain Jane SE with 215/65/15 steelies.

As long as the diameter of all the tires are the same, you should be fine. A diameter slightly larger or smaller from the stock tires shouldn't bother the ABS, as all 4 will be the same size. I had this problem on my '94 SSEi, I had smaller diameter tires on the front, and larger ones on the back, and my ABS would spaz out and engage.
