Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum
Initial Review: 25,000 miles on tires

I have been a Kumho guy for over 20 years. Owned 2 sets of the Platinum LX. Tires seem to drop off the inside tread prematurely. Both vehicles were aligned. All alignment specs are ok. 40k is the most mileage I could safely run these tires. Probably will not give them another chance. Snow traction is fair a best. But all other areas they are above average. I'll still buy Kumho in the future.
