Mastercraft is made by Cooper. I think you'll be pleased with the tires...I've always like Coopers products.

Il throw a little insight at ya on these tires. The original Mastercraft courser A/T was a good tire, but they cupped very bad and they wore out fairly fast. This went on for years, and everyone bitched about it. So a few years ago they designed this tire, which is 100 times better. The originals had uniform design, but they were VERY blocky, causing the cupping which resulted in the rapid tire wear. The AT2s are just as aggressive, but they are less blocky, and have a solid center bar which helps alot when the tires to start to cup. It relieves pressure off of the cupped bars, which slows down the tire wear. The AT2s also have rain/snow snipes, which help in snow and rainy conditions. All around the AT2 is a great tire.

By the way Jarhead, if you were refering to me as 99daksport5.2 I got the Dayton Timberlane MTs, in which they do last forever lolol..

well, sounds good to me! just on the drive home from the tire shop i could feel a world of difference. im drivin around in 4 wheel drive alot because there is basically 3 inches of snow on every road in western new york right now, and with the old tires i would spin all over the place even in 4wd. but with these tires, man what a difference! and for what i paid for them, they could wear out in 10k miles and i still wouldnt be out any money.

I had the original coursers on my truck and hated them. they had no traction what so ever. in rain was constantly spinning. Yes they wore out fast. Hope the second version is a lot better. I for one wont buy mastercraft again. i have firestone destination A/T now and a year later still look new and traction 100 times better.

cant beat the price though thats a hell of a deal. for that price i would have to pick them up :jester:

what, is cupping of a tire...
from what i understand, its when a tire actually "bounces" on the road, causing certain spots to wear around the tire surface faster than others. if you were to rub your hand around the diameter of the tire, it would feel bumpy. the easiest way to describe it would be to compare it to waves in a body of water as they come in to shore; high spot (wave), low spot (between waves), high spot, low spot... all the way around the tire, the low spots being referred to as "cups".
