Initial Review, 18,000 Miles on Tires
I had previously driven on a set of Kumho ECSTA ASX tires and the OEM Michelin Symmetry tires on my Odyssey. This set of Kumho ECSTA Platinum LX is without question the best tires I have experienced. At first drive, the Platinum LX tires were much quieter than the ASX or Symmetry tires. Wet traction, particularly hydroplaning resistance, was far greater with the Platinum LX which was a big surprise to me given the asymmetric tread design. I had thought uni-directional tread designs were better at resisting hydroplaning but I was clearly wrong.
