Finally I have lifted the Commander by 2" OME coils (I will post pics and info about the lift in another thread later)

Now I need new and bigger tires, while searching in the market I found a new brand to me called (Mastercraft) imported from US, Any one knows anything about this brand?

The tire I'm interested in is the "Courser A/T" 265/65/17 which look like this .. any recommendation on this tire?

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.

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.

I have the DEAN brand tire on my wife's CJ. They have been great tires and work great off-road but they are a more aggressive tread than the one pictured above. I trust them even though they are an off brand. I would look at the other brands for reviews if you cannot find one on that exact tire. I know Kenda is also a good brand, I have put them on some equipment before and they last for a long time.
