Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum vs. Kumho Ecsta 4X

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 by Gary Stanley

If you've never considered Kumho tires before, you may want to take a good look at them now. A couple of their more recent tires have performed particularly well in both our testing and customer survey results. Available as value-priced options, the Ecsta 4X and Ecsta LX Platinum are two great tires worth considering.

In one of my recent blog posts, "Sound Tire Advice: Kumho Ecsta 4X is a Great Tire" I offered details about this great tire. But what about the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum? The tire is designed for drivers who are willing to give up a little handling and steering response from the Ecsta 4X for a softer ride and longer treadwear. 

If you're looking for feedback on the tire, check out what some of our customers have to say about their experience with the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum :

"I've put on 36,000 miles since November 2011 and my tires still look healthy, with that it has about 7-8/32 left on tread. I've driven through all changes from the four seasons, and for the average driver, a set of these Kumho LX Platinums should do the job. And the two things I like most about these tires are the fact that it is quiet and treadlife is great."  -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2006 Honda Accord Coupe EX 4-cyl

"These are one of the best set of tires I have owned to date. A true silky smooth tire. Nice even wear. Can not go wrong with a set of these for your luxury ride." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Mazda Millennium. 

"I have now driven on the tire for over 500 miles and I can say very comfortably that the Kumho's are much more comfortable and create less noise then the OEM Michelins. I would buy them again in a heartbeat. They corner strong but provide a much softer ride then the Michelins."  --- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2005 BMW X3 3.0i
