2004 MDX looking for some new shoes. Currently running Continental LX20 that have started to hydroplane now that they have around 45k on them. Always used to run Michelins on everything but these LX20's were far better than the Latitude Tours it had before. Tried the Yokohama YK-HTX and took them off after 500 miles because they felt too squishy in the turns. Now I'm seeing the Conti LX25 and it looks awesome. Then I see this new Premier LTX DT and can hardly find any info about it other than an increase from 9/32 to 10/32. Have they changed the actual compound? Where we currently live now there can be torrential downpours that pool up water everywhere and then for the next month weather will be bone dry and 100 degrees everyday. Right now there's a killer deal on Goodyear Weatherready at Sam's club but I don't see that tire as being a hot weather candidate. What do you guys think of this new LTX Premier? Will it change the terrible lifespan the original model had?
