Mastercraft Courser AXT Tire Review & Rating

The Mastercraft Courser AXT all-terrain tire is built for drivers of all types of pickups, SUV’s and other 4×4’s. It’s been designed with a robust list of features that provide traction for weekend off-road use, as well as the everyday driver for the highway.

A proprietary tread compound utilizes silica in its makeup that is intended to improve the tire’s traction on wet or snow covered pavement, while also enhancing overall performance and treadlife.

Mastercraft Courser AXT Tire Review

The tread pattern features a 5-rib design that has been molded with 12% more lateral grooves than the tire’s predecessor, to further maximize grip on uncertain terrain.

Wide circumferential grooves around the tire feature a zig-zag pattern to improve traction on mud, dirt, sand and other soft surfaces, as well as on snow and light ice. Alternating scallops further increase performance off the beaten path.

The Mastercraft AXT is available in a wide variety of LT sizes that range from 15-20 inches. There’s also a 50K mile tread life warranty included on all sizes.


  • Reliable on-road traction and handling on dry, wet or snow covered surfaces
  • Good performance in lighter off-road terrain
  • Priced lower than many comparable name brand models


  • A little extra road noise
  • Traction on rougher terrain could be improved

Overall Thoughts

Mastercraft, which is manufactured under the Cooper Tire umbrella, has produced a reasonably priced all-terrain tire that delivers pretty solid overall performance both on or off road. The tread design is similar to the Cooper AT3, which is a very good tire in itself.

The AXT is an ideal fit for drivers who plan to use the tire as a daily driver and as a weekend off the path in light terrain type of scenario. You’ll find it rides well in light mud, sand, gravel, dirt and grass. It also does quite well in moderate to heavy snow. Don’t expect great rock performance or even heavy mud use. It simply is not built for it.

While not up to the level of the top performers in the all-terrain class like the BFG T/A KO2, Firestone Destination A/T or Michelin LTX AT2 among others, the Mastercraft AXT does offer good traction and handling and may save you some money in the process. We give it a rank in the middle of this class.
