Who Makes Mastercraft Tires?
There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Mastercraft Tires, or if you have, you know very little about them. And if you’re shopping for new tires, that’s a cause for concern.
After a, it’s a safe bet to trust bands you might know, like Michelin or Pirelli. Like in all industries, however, those brand names tend to be the result not just of top-quality product, but of decades of heavy marketing – a price that’s baked right into the product you’re buying.
So you can avoid over-paying for tires by opting for tier-two or even tier-three tire brands. But which ones can you trust?
But before we go any further, let’s deal with the topic at hand: Mastercraft Tires are made by Cooper Tires.
Cooper, it should be pointed out, is an American tire manufacturer based in Ohio. And they don’t just manufacture tires here, they design and test them here too. They operate two plans in the US, one in the same city as their corporate headquarters in Findlay, OH. The other in Texarkana, AR.
Now, we should clarify that this doesn’t mean all Mastercraft tires are made in America. To know that there’s really only one way to tell and thats by looking at a tire itself.
Each tire comes stamped with a DOT number on the sidewall, and using that number, along with our Which Tires Are Made in America guide, you can figure it out.
Cooper has additional global plants in the UK, Serbia, two in China and one in Mexico.
For a little backstory on Mastercraft. It’s been around for many decades and is a part of the overall Cooper Tires brand, which was founded in 1914.
Cooper also owns the Mickey Thompson tire brand, well-known for its history in drag racing, plus Avon Tyres, which are perhaps best known for their motorcycle product offerings.
Currently Mastercraft offers a full line of on and off-road tires for cars, trucks and SUVs with 17 different tire options.
