Mastercraft Courser HTX (Our Review)
In addition to a tough all-terrain tread compound that can drive gracefully over any sort of terrain (aside from deep snow), the Courser HTX is equipped with interlocking tread elements that ensure responsive steering and better overall handling even at high speeds. It also implements a continuous shoulder rib that boosts its durability and ensures ride comfort.
The tire is able to navigate wet pavements with the aid of large circumferential grooves as well as lateral grooves encircling the tread. This combination ensures an optimal wet grip and helps reduce the effects of hydroplaning significantly. The tire is able to navigate light to moderate now, but we wouldn’t recommend it for deep snow and ice.
The only downside to using this tire, as far as our assessment went, is road noise. The tire isn’t loud initially, but when it starts to wear down, it gets louder and louder, which can be fatiguing to the ear over long driving sessions.
