I bought a set of these tires almost 3 months ago since i was in need of new tires and i knew i had a few hundred dollars comin to me...at the time i was looking for a more agressive tire than the ATs i had on it before, so i pretty much wanted MTs, and i wanted to go up to 33s...most of the 33" mud tires ive seen were $140 or more, or didn't have a good lookin lug pattern and crappy plain sidewall...A bunch of my friends had been running Mastercraft Courser M/Ts, and one guy got over 45K miles out of them, and they were 35s. Hell, they even have a 40K wear out warrenty i do believe (ive seen it on one site)...which is better than a lot of mud tires. 33x12.50x15s cost $100 even from the distributers, but i don't think its possible to get them directly from the distributer, but i was able to find a place around here that gave them to me for $110.49 per tire...i love the way these tires ride, have great grip offroad, and handle almost as good as my old ATs, balanced out very nicely...very good tire IMO for the money, the only problem is that they don't produce them over 35s. but heres a pic just so yall know what they look like.


i love these tires and when the time comes i already know what my next set will be...except 35x12.50 :head: i thought i would let everyone know a good cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive BFGs and stuff like that...i still need to get some measurements to see the actual size of the tires, but they would be a good agressive tire for someone who likes to play in the mud some, still drive on the street, or someone who doesn't see the point in payin $150/tire for some BFGs when they won't get used like they should...

of course the guy with redneck in his name finds this tire :D it's always cool to find something substantially cheaper and as good if not better than the higher priced alternatives.

Good looking tire. Can't beat the price. I was looking at Dunlop Mud Rovers or Maxxis Buckshots if I hadn't wound up getting a sweet deal on some MT/R's. Some guy was selling his truck and put the stock wheels/tires back on and decided he'd make more money by re-selling the tires for $135 ea. That beat the $210 or so per tire new, plus these had very low miles and still had some of the nipples on them. I don't know anyone that sells 315/75 16 Mastercrafts around here.

Findin someone that sells them can be the hard part...everyone in augusta knows about them it seems like, and half of the used car dealerships put them on thier cars if they get cars in with low tread...they are made by Cooper tires, so they aren't that shitty...but the best thing to do is use the find a distributer thing on the site, call up one of the distributers and find out what places around you sell them...u might be surprised...

i had two sets of their all-terrains, belt shifted and i ended up getting $60 back for the last set which only lasted about 20k before they went out of round. bought trXus MTs and never looked back. a guy at work has the mastercraft MTs on his ford and they're wearing out pretty fast. spend the extra $20 or so per tire, there are better tires IMO.

my friend had them on his 2wd rcsv v6 99 chevy and loved them. They seemed to ride well and wear well.
