Mastercraft Courser AXT Tire Review

Overall Assessment

Mastercraft is a tire that is produced as a sub brand of Cooper Tire. The Mastercraft creates a product that has solid performance on and off road while being competitively priced. The Mastercraft Courser AXT has a similar tread design to the Cooper AT3 which in of itself is a particularly good tire.

The Mastercraft Courser AXT is not a tire that is designed to shoot the lights out when it comes to performance. It simply is not in its DNA. Where the tire really does shine is its general performance on a daily basis across the full spectrum of conditions and terrains which a SUV or pickup driver may encounter including sand, gravel, light mud, dirt or grass. It has good traction and handling and when coupled with its price, makes the Courser AXT a good value proposition for the motorist looking for versatility.

As mentioned, the tire is not designed to take on heavy duty action. The rock performance is not great and heavy mud can prove to be difficult.

Overall, this is a good middle of the road tire which is sure to give decent performance in most situations at a more accessible price. As long as you are aware of this tire’s limitations, it is a perfectly good option for those looking for a good all round deal.


  • Good traction on the road in all conditions
  • Reliable performance in light off road terrain
  • Pricing compared to some of its competitors                                                     


  • Road noise could be quieter
  • Traction when on rougher terrain

Mastercraft Courser AXT Tire Customer Reviews

Rob says: “I bought the Mastercraft Courser AXT and I am very happy. For the price they are good quality and I have found the traction to be good in many situations, even in the snow which was surprising. They really are a good bang for your buck. 275/70/17 on 2011 Silverado.”

Rob posted 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5) review

Jack says: “These tires are fantastic despite the terrain and I have used them on concrete, dirt, mud, rocks, and snow. I have had them on my Jeep for a few years and I have never had an issue with them. The other day when I got home from work, , I saw a pocket utility knife had gotten stuck into one of the tires. I pulled it out and it was nearly all the way into the tread. The tire had no leak and still held air which was very impressive. The off road performance is surprisingly good for the price. I really cannot recommended these tires enough”
