Mastercraft MC-440 Tire Review & Rating
The Mastercraft MC-440 all-season tire is designed to deliver reliable traction and handling in year-round conditions, as well as a comfortable ride and long lasting treadlife. It also features a lower price for budget-conscious drivers.
Mastercraft, which is a division of Cooper Tire, uses an all-season tread compound that is M+S rated with an asymmetric tread pattern that combines to provide very good traction and handling on dry road surfaces. The continuous center rib quickens steering response and adds to on-center feel.
Wide circumferential grooves and unique lateral shoulder slots and see-through grooves contribute to its grip on wet pavement. It works well on this model and is an area we’ve heard other drivers mention in reviews as being a real plus as well.
Traction in light snow is aided by the biting edges of the grooves and lateral slots, although this is not a major strength for this tire. Grip in deeper amounts of snow, and on ice and hard-pack, is questionable. A dedicated winter tire is advised if you live in an area that sees quite a bit of snow and ice.
The Mastercraft MC440 is available in a wide range of 14-17 inch sizes with speed ratings of T, H and V. Treadlife is backed by a 40K mile warranty.
- Dependable dry and wet traction
- Smooth and quiet ride at highway speeds
- Dry/wet braking
- Treadlife is above average
- Value for the performance and money
- Deep snow and ice traction
As a value-priced tire, the Mastercraft MC-440 is among the better all-season tires. It delivers very good dry and wet traction, with better than average braking on most surfaces. The ride is smooth and quiet, although you might expect to hear a bit more noise as the tread wears down.
Where you may find issues is with grip in deeper snow and on ice. Naturally, this is not a winter tire and traction problems can be expected.
Treadlife has shown to be longer lasting than you might think, and it’s backed with a 40K mile tread warranty.
Overall, while not the best in class against tires like the Continental TrueContact or General Altimax RT43 among others, the MC-440 is a nice choice in new tires for anyone looking to save some good money. Its value and performance for the money is excellent.
