Mastercraft Courser HXT Tire Review & Rating

The Mastercraft Courser HXT is designed as a commercial highway light truck tire that is built to provide reliable year-round performance. In addition, the HXT is priced lower than many bigger brand name tires to save you money at the same time.

Mastercraft uses a tougher all-terrain tread compound in the HXT that is matched up to an M+S rated asymmetric tread pattern for added traction on dry, wet or snow covered road surfaces.

Mastercraft Courser HXT Tire Review

Interlocking tread elements deliver improved handling and steering response throughout the speed range, while the continuous shoulder rib adds to a quiet ride and increased treadlife.

Large circumferential grooves around the tread and numerous lateral grooves help enhance grip on wet pavement and greatly reduce the risk of hydroplaning. It also helps when driving on snow and ice, although ice traction is not a strength for this tire.

The Mastercraft HXT is available in a range of 15-20 inch LT sizes, and includes a 50K mile tread warranty.


  • Reliable on and off-road traction
  • Quiet ride
  • Treadlife is very good
  • Value for the money


  • Road noise as tire wears down

Overall Thoughts

Mastercraft, which is made by Cooper Tire, has engineered a solid performing tire with the HXT. Traction on dry or wet streets is very good, and performance in snowy conditions is not bad as well. In addition, treadlife has shown to be longer lasting than some other models in this class.

The only real complaint with this tire would be the added noise as it wears out. To be fair, that’s an issue with most all commercial class tires.

While other tires like the Goodyear Duratrac and Cooper ST Maxx remain at the top of this class, the Mastercraft HXT is not far from them. When you factor in the performance for the lower cost, this tire provides very good value for the money.
