We changed the rear tires back to the Dunlops, and now it works. I didn't realize how much difference there was between the two. I'll try to return them and get a pair of rear Dunlops. The front Continentals are great, though the car pulls to the right since it needs aligned. Speedometer is spot on.
PV1, Please specify what size combination of front and rear causes regen to be lost. The posts are not clear on that.
Those of us considering upgrading the front's need to know how much front to rear wheel % diameter mismatch does not affect regen.
New the difference is 4%.
If the engineers were being nice and the ABS allowed, they would have designed the system to allow new fronts and worn rears, or new rears and worn fronts. If that is the case the maximum range of % difference might be:
(in) (in) % rear/front
21.9 23.3 6.39% worn front
22.4 23.3 4.02% new
22.4 22.7 1.51% worn rear
