Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. It IS true that different sized tires can cause noises. Most often, an odd tire causes the ABS to activate. Let's hypothesize that you have three of one type/size tire and one different make/size. The Circumference of the odd tire will not rotate the same RPM as the other three. This 'tricks' the ABS computer (receiving data from the wheel speed sensors) to calculate and respond by applying ABS effect to the odd sized tire. This is quite common. You should always have 4 identical manufacturer tires/size on any ABS equipped vehicle to avoid this phenomenon.
