New tires next week. A quick abs question

Next weekend Im getting some 31 x 10.5 x 15 BFG allterrain A/Ts installed on my truck. (finally!!) The question I have is will larger tires affect the ABS system at all. I know my speedo will be out by a little and it may be a bit of a dog off the line with the 3.0 and 3.73 gears. Is there anything else I should look out for? Its an 01 edge reg cab.

No effects on ABS. ABS does not care what size.

+1, only difference in braking will be due to the new weight of the wheels it needs to slow down. So it may not lockup (abs)as easily, depending on the old tires

ABS looks at wheel speed. So Tire size will have no affect on ABS, like Goody mentioned it will affect your stoping distance.
