Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

The Ecsta LX Platinum is Kumho's Grand Touring All-Season tire developed to meet the needs of sporty coupe and luxury performance sedan drivers. It is designed to blend responsive handling, long wear and a quiet ride with year-round traction including in light snow.

Kumho molds their advanced all-season tread compound into the Ecsta LX Platinum radial's asymmetric tread design where three different types of sipes are used to enhance all-season traction. Outboard shoulder and intermediate tread block sipes terminate in stress relief dimples to help the sipe openings blend straight-line snow traction with lateral grip. Straight sipes are used for the middle blocks while waffle design sipes are used on the inboard intermediate and shoulder tread blocks to blend dry-road stability with all-season traction. The internal structure of Ecsta LX Platinum tires feature twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon cord on top of a polyester cord carcass to combine high-speed durability with ride quality.

Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum tires feature black sidewall styling with subtle black letters reversed out of a stylized sidewall band. They are available in H-, V- or W-speed rated, 65-, 60-, 55-, 50- and 45-series sizes for 14" to 19" wheel diameters.
