They look like a private label brand from another manufacturer. They are probably a Cooper tire or something like that. Cooper has a couple different brand names that they sell from. Check all the load and speed ratings and make sure you don't get a tire that has been sitting on a shelf somewhere for a couple years. The look like a good tire.

I have heard of mastercraft before. They are a cheap off brand tire that I really wouldnt recommend if you plan on doing any type of off roading with. Im not sure what brands of tires you are able to get over there but id recommend getting a different brand tire.

The range of tires are also sometimes known as Cooper Mastercraft Tires.

The Courser A/T from Mastercraft is designed for light trucks and SUV’s. It is the ideal choice for the driver who wants better traction while still keeping the smooth, quiet ride. The tread design of these tires is computer formatted to optimize the tread pattern sequence. The high density tread block sipes and wide chevron grooves of the tires by Mastercraft increase the effectiveness of the gripping edges to give more traction in mud, ice and snow. The dual radius tread arc provides a uniform pressure distribution to give even wear and consistent grip.

All of the Mastercraft designs are developed using state of the art technology. They are engineered to provide a smooth, quiet ride and able to tackle the extremes of driving conditions.

I'm almost positive that Cooper makes the Mastercraft brand of tires. I know that they are somewhat popular with the offroad crowd, but I don't have any first hand experiece with them.

However, I do currently run Cooper Discover ATRs on my 4Runner and I think they are fantastic tires. Cooper itself is a very good brand from what I've experienced. I've noticed a lot of the pick-ups and SUVs running snow plows are using Discoverer ATR tires, so they must be pretty good for the snow!

I see Cico beat me to it! I knew those tires were made by Cooper!


Ahmed, before you buy those tires, do a little research and see if you can determine how they perform on sand.
