Q: Restrain system faulty warning on - 2013 BMW X1

asked by on

I had to change the back tires on my car. As I couldn't find the tires with the recommended size anywhere near where I live, I purchased tires that were slightly bigger. When I had them replaced, the "restrain system faulty" warning came up. Is this warning connected to the tire replacement or does it indicate another problem? Is it safe to drive the car with 225/65 tires instead of the recommended 225/50?
