Choosing the right Mastercraft Courser AXT

Mastercraft tires are manufactured under the Cooper Tires, a leading tire company in the United States. The Mastercraft Courser AXT is a decently priced, all-terrain tire especially in comparison to similar models from other brands. Let me give you a few reasons as to why I personally favor it over similar models in other brands.

a.  Handling

It has an aggressive design including additional grooves, which provides you with superior on-road handling and a maximized tire grip on all terrains. This is all thanks to its ramp design. The stone control is achieved when the gravel pushes towards the grooves and hence provide a more handy release.

b.  Durability

It uses silica as the main component for the tread compound, which not only maximizes the elevation of traction in wet and snowy weather but also increases its general tread life. Just one look at the outward appearance will tell you that it is both durable and robust.

c.  Comfort

The Mastercraft Courser AXT tires can’t be matched in comfort.  Designed to keep an excellent balance of all-terrain traction, they’re also long mileage and economical for pickup trucks and SUVs. Rest assured they’re not only comfortable to ride in but also a comfortable choice for your pocket.

d.  Fuel-Efficient

The perfect value tire that gives you better gas mileage owing to its low rolling resistance, which saves you countless bucks at the gas pump in the long run.

What makes their tire different?

It won’t be wrong to say that the Mastercraft Courser AXT is a solid overall performer, both on and off road, making it most reliable regardless of the road conditions. Hence I can safely state that it is functional for both daily highway driving and for rough and harsh off-road terrains.
