Default Mastercraft Courser CXT

Before I bought tires, I did a lot of research trying to find a good tire that I liked. I had a few parameters, but nothing major. I mainly wanted something more aggressive than most all-terrain tires, without being a mud terrain. After a few days of searching, I came upon Commercial Traction tires. Some people refer to these as hybrid tires though. After looking though the small selection of LT295/70R18 tires, I chose to go with the Mastercraft Courser CXT. Though I've only had these tires for a little over a week, I figured I'd share with everyone as there are not many reviews on these tires.

Mastercraft's Courser CXT is only slightly less aggressive than their MXT, while still being quiet and comfortable on the road. I notice very little noise when cruising, and only hear a slight hum while accelerating and decelerating. They are a 2 ply design and start with 18/32 of tread all the way around. The rubber is not soft like some Nitto tires, yet its not hard either. They handle very well on wet and dry pavement, are excellent in mud, on trails, and they dig in and grip very well in soft dirt and sand.

When I bought my truck, it came with Goodyear Wrangled SR-A 275/65R18 tires. Comparing those to the CXTs, I actually noticed a smoother, more comfortable ride after switching.

With the stock tires, I averaged about 17.5-18.5 MPG. With the Mastercraft's, my mileage only slightly dropped to an average of 17-17.5. I feel this is completely acceptable for the change in size, weight, and aggressiveness.

All in all, I'm really happy with these tires so far and would recommend them to anyone looking for an aggrezive tire, without going to a mud-terrain.





I will upload more pictures and update this thread as time goes by.

Also, these tires are fairly cheap compared to others in this size. I got them for $239.70 a tire from a local shop.

I've been extremely happy with the CXT's. What PSI are you running them?

The ones that I have don't have white letters, however I'm unsure if there is white letters available. But so far these tires have performed excellent and I have no complaints.

295/70-18...so that's basically a 35" tire. Have you noticed the MPG plunge yet? They look really beefy.

Ive noticed it dropped a little, but not much. It went down maybe 1.5 mpg on bad days.

Tires look great! I have been eyeballing these but can't find any info on them. How do they run in snow if you have seen any?

Unfortunately I got them right after we had snow here. However, they are studdable and I've heard they do well in snow from others.

Keep us updated on the wear and how you like them. These will probably be my next tire in 285/65r18. Not trying to go too big since I have 3.31 rear end.
