    Their Courser line are great tires for the money. I have ran them on pickups, SUV's and the wife's BMW. My go-to tire guy has told me to stay away from their low end models if you want long life.

    No a fan of them personally. Never found a round set. Most won't balance for crap. A 3k/year, all tires are going to age out long before they wear out so just pick something cheap and roll.

    Traction in what?

    I have the MasterCraft in a MT configuration. I was disappointed after coming from General Grabber AT.

    Mine are heavy ply LT tires though. The Generals were also heavy ply LT tires and performed better in everything except sloppy mud fields

    The previous pair I had on a Sorento was Cooper Mastercrafts. The wife's Accord still has them. Discount Tire has an exclusive Cooper model called the Arizona Silver Edition and they're on the Sorento now. They were both good tires. I think the Silvers wear a little faster, but I'm only driving 5 or 6 hundred miles/month now. I'd put another set of Cooper's discount tires on either vehicle.

    We just put a set of Arizonians on DoggyMama's van. She likes them so far. Neither of us put a lot of miles on our vehicles anymore. I just put a set of Yokohamas on my car. Both from Discount Tire.

    I have ran a lot of them, I’ve never had a problem with them, the wife runs 100 miles give or take a day and hers are wearing great. I was planning on getting some to put on my truck in a more aggressive off-road tire.

    I have a set on the wife Ram 1500 and a set on my F-350 shop truck. I have had several sets over the years. Never had an issue. The wifes Hemi Ram will smoke the rears but it is not a tire issue. Its an issue with someone putting their foot to the floor.

    There was a new pair of Mastercraft tires on a mid sized car I bought used. They were fine, rode smooth, handled fine, lasted a lot of miles. I was driving probably 500 to 600 miles a week at the time, so they did not have a chance to dry rot. I didn't know they were made by Cooper.

    I would stay away from the MT style then.

    I had Cooper ST's first, they were a good tire.

    General Grabber AT's second, they were a really good tire.

    MasterCraft MT's last. They got hard and wore uneven no matter what I tried. These were the worst of all tires I had, even the Chinese AT's that were on it when I got it.
    I went with Cooper AT3's on the new truck, couldn't find any ST's or I would have went back with them.

    Edit: Not sure why I assumed this is for a pickup.

    OT, but Discount Tire has been great to deal with over the last 10 years or so. Twice in that time I've picked up a nail and they've repaired it for free despite me not buying any extra road hazard warranty. I've shopped tires every time in that period when I needed to replace a set and they've been super competitive about prices. My only complaint is that they don't do alignments.

    I've had great luck with them too. When I needed new front tires for my lawnmower, they ordered them in quickly and for the best price I had seen anywhere. Originally I was just going to replace one, but the price was so good I had them order me two.

    Looks like maybe I’ll not be getting the mastercraft mt’s? The Nittos that came on the truck are wearing great, but jeez they are almost $500 per tire!
