New Mastercraft MXT

I'm not in the market for tires right now but just thought I would pass this along to anyone who might be looking for new tires fairly soon. I stumbled across this while I was just browsing online, and it looks like Mastercraft just unveiled their new MXT tire, which is listed as an extreme mud terrain. It also looks like it was just shown about 3 days ago at the SEMA show. According the Mastercraft's website, it looks like they will offer them in a few sizes that people have been running on tundras. Just thought I would pass it along because they are usually a cheaper alternative to the Nitto MT's and the Toyo MT's for people who want a good looking tire on a budget. I think they are a sweet looking tire and I'll be interested in any reviews and prices once they are available in stores and people can run them.

Finally got some real life pics

Alright I know I started this thread to show these tires to people...but a friend of mine just put these on his dodge 2500. He went with a 35x12.50-20. They look very good IMO, and he said they have a good ride, very smooth and quiet to be that aggressive. Also, I believe Mastercraft is selling them much cheaper than normal right now, trying to get them out there and let people know about them. I got a quote from a local tire guy in my town, and he told me a 275/70/18 in this mounted, balanced, and out the door would be about $990. For comparison, that same size in a set of trail grapplers on discount tire's website runs about $1300 shipped to your door, and then have to have them mounted.

I see alot of people running them around here, but most of them don't have many miles on them. The guy that I posted pics of running them, he said he's probably not going to get but about 20k miles out of his. His truck is very heavy though, and all he uses it for is pulling trailers and stuff like that. The truck isn't his DD, so when he does drive it, he's usually got a good size load behind him.

I think they are a pretty good mud tire for the money. A set of the MXT's in the 275/70/18 is still about $300-$400 cheaper than the Trail Grapplers, at least at the shops I've talked to around here.

If you find any other reviews about these, be sure to post back. I really like the tires, but can't seem to find many people posting about mileage. I know quite a few of the offroad shops around here are putting these on rather than the Nitto's...but I feel sure that's also because it's cheaper for them.

I don't need an MT on my DD, but they look good. Those ST Maxx are some good looking tires as well, and definitely should last longer.

My dad just put a set of these on his 2500HD Sierra over the weekend. He went with the 285/70/17 and got them mounted and out the door for about $950. Initial thoughts, they look great, and very aggressive in person. I rode around the block with him in it, and they are very quiet for what they are, ride smooth, and balanced up well. Of course they will wear get louder as they wear, but all of them do that. I will try and keep reviews posted of the tire in general.
