"AWD, DSC and ABS malfunction" with 19's after dealer visit.

My 07 335xi had 225/40/18 - 255/35/18 staggered setup from the factory. I installed 19's with 235/35-275/30 and had no problems for several months. The factory setup is -.23% FvsR, the 19 is even closer, +.077% FvsR, but 1/2 more diameter.

A few days after visiting the dealer for an oil change with the 19's, idrive started intermittently throwing "AWD, DSC and ABS malfunction" after driving 10 miles, but not every day. As a test I put the stock 225/40/18 - 255/35/18 setup on and have gone 1000 miles without any codes.

My question is did the dealer do something to the programming? I want to put my 19's back on, but the code is worrying me.
