    Default Problem with brakes

    I feel there is a problem with the ABS on my 07 Vectra. When im braking normally for example coming up to traffic lights i can feel as if the abs is kicking in. I spoke to the service manager at vauxhall and he said it was the 19" wheels (snowflakes), because there was such a small profile on the tyre you would feel alot more vibration coming through the car . I personnaly feel this is alot of ba-ls.

    Could it be that the side walls of he tyres are thinner and firmer and pressures are higher so the tyre is bouncing on rough ground and the ABS is kicking in?

    Default brakes

    Nothing to do with the wheels mate.

    Could your disks be warped?
