Default Maximum deviation of front/rear tire before ABS light comes on

Can anyone tell me how much diameter difference the cruisers accept between front and rear tires before the ABS light comes on?
I saw a member here had ABS light on with 235/55 17 rear and 215/45 17 front.

I'm thinking about going for 235/50 17 rear and 205/50 17 front.

I'm no expert on this but
just looking at your question, the first person that had the light come on had different aspect ratios (55/45) where your staying the same (50/50) but just going to a slightly wider tire in section width (measured in millimeters) so you should be OK as long as there's no rubbing of the tire when turning on the fender sides or strut.

ABS doesn't come on with the stupid spare tire...If you can figure that diameter.
