I am not happy with the [color=#009900 !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif !important]Bridgestone[/font]
Dueler H/L Alenza [color=#009900 !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif !important]tires[/font][/color] that came on my 2010 Traverse LTZ and have been looking for replacements before winter comes. The wheels feel loose on the road and I am constantly adding air due to low pressure indications. The problem I am running into is that in the size (255/55R20) currently installed there are only 3 choices currently on [color=#009900 !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif !important]the market[/font][/color] including the same tires. I have been able to find several [color=#009900 !important][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif !important]options[/font][/color] in a slight deviation to the size (255/50R20) but have been cautioned that changing the size may have adverse effects on the speed sensors for the traction control and anti-lock braking system as well as the speedometer reading. Has anyone had any experience with this issue? [/color]

@Tucker - My question is what affect will it have to the speed sensors that control the anti-lock brakes and traction control system if I install different size tires than what was OEM installed and recommended.  I cannot find a good option to the Bridgestone Alenza tires (255/55R20) that are currently installed.  I did however find a tire I like but it is a 255/50R20.  Will this slight change in size have any adverse effects in driving the vehicle?

The difference in diameter between 255/55R20 and 255/50R20 is not that huge. There will be a slight change in speedometer reading though it should not be an issue. If you want to stick with 255/55's there are other good options like Hankook, Mickey Thompson, Michelin and Goodyear..
