98 with abs inpo light

I just put new wheels on (18'') and now my abs inpo light, and brake light comes on, everytime we drive it, but not right away. After about 2 miles it comes on and stays. It doesn't have any braking issues that I've noticed and it started only after we changed the wheel size. Is the something I can do to correct this?

Changing the wheel size shouldn't cause the lights to come on. Have you noticed any change in the braking quality?

There's a bunch of ABS inop threads here that might help

Check the ABS sensors. You might have bumped one or something while changing the wheels.

Did you put on all four 18 inch wheels or just the rear?

My 97 did this, check to make sure abs fuses in that underhood fuse box are tight. Not sure if 98 had them there though.

Tire size?
I am betting they are different diameter than factory or one (or more) are different than the others.
