Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum
Initial Review: 62,000 miles on tires
August 07, 2012

After much research and a recommendation from a track racer, I put these on the Subie at 42,000 miles. I drive somewhat spirited being that this Outback has a turbo and gets up and goes. Light off road, never had an issue or a fret no matter how deep into the woods I went. Tried to spin these tires out in the snow - about 3, and just could not get them to slide - keep in mind this is an AWD vehicle.
Although they don't let me rate for off road, I took these on the sand and they handled well. I definitely put these through the paces and they have handled everything well.
