traction light on

I just bought a 97 318i. The traction light only comes on after driving like a mile or so and I was wondering if the tire size is the problem. The manual says it should have P205/60/15 and the tires are P195/60/15. Thanks!

i dont think that the tire size has anything to do with it...the light coming on means ur traction control is off...the light should be gone meaning its on...u might have a traction control issue
