I am the service manager at a small high-end import shop, and after a short conversation with Jerry my Tire Rack Rep. I reluctantly tried a set of the LX Platinum for a customer with very picky taste but wanted to try a "cheaper" alternative he was a regular so I obliged him. He still stops by at least once a week on his lunch break to thank us for turning him on to these tires, and has since put them on his wife's Volvo V60 as well. Now any time I can find the proper fitment for my application the Kumho LX Platinum is my go to tire across the board especially on anything with a longer wheel base for its class. All Wheel Drive platforms also performed surprisingly well for tread live and minimal tire noise.
(Other successful applications: Subaru sedans(Wagons, especially for ridding that symmetrical AWD tire noise), Mid/Full size Volvo's, Volkswagen Passats, Audi A4, A6, BMW 3&5 series in all generations and the Mercedes C&E Class; as well as your typical applications: Civics, Corollas)
