Flashing traction light

Well I have been using the Mini2 forums for some time now and have always found what I needed. Until now.

I have the standard 15" mini alloys on my Cooper and the Pirelli's have just worn out, so I have changed them to 195 60 15's, from posts I had read I felt this was my best option as low profile wheels are of no use to me due to lots of rough tracks that I travel down to go surfing.

Anyway all went wll the Mini now has better grip and control but for some reason the traction control light is constantly flashing when I start the engine and whilst driving.

Can anyone advise me please as to what the problem maybe.

Thanks
Gaz

Grasping at straws ...

Did you reset the Tire Pressure Monitor System after fitting the new tires?
