Ill be putting these Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum tires on my STS when my factory tires wear a little more. Cant beat the quality and the price. I kind of hesitated originally on buying a foreign made tire, but so much of the car is foreign anyhow.
    I have these Kumho on my 2006 STS. I have found them to be excellent. I would recommend you to keep to the same size. You are able to do a proper rotation and the life span should be good. I have the staggered sizes on my car and found the life span has been cut in half. The ride on these Kumho are excellent and quiet. Like other people have mentioned, the prices are very reasonable compared to the Michelins.

    I have the Kumho Ecsta platinums. I have run about 40K on two 18" sets. Not as quiet as I would like. When new they are pretty good. The two main problems with hem as the age are poor rain performance, and the get hard, so the ride is stiffer.
