Mastercraft MC-440 Tire Reviews
(Based on 19 Reviews)
These tires came on a 1991 Miata that I bought. I had to replace one tire due to hiway damage. So far I have been very impressed with how nicely they work. I live in Western Oregon so wet weather handling and braking is important. These tires do very well in the wet or dry. They even handled some light snow and slush this last winter. I have put about 12,000 miles on them and they have lots of tread left. I think they are a great value.

I'v had about 4 sets of these tires on 2 different cars and they are the best I have found, given the price!
I bought 4 mastercraft m/c 440. When I installed them they had a vibration so I rebalanced them and still had vibrations. So then I road force balanced them and they was all high. Also noticed that the tires where out of round not so that was what the rough ride and vibration was coming from. But they do where good I’ll give them that. I put about 3,000 miles on them and they are all at 9/32 tread depth.
Bought MC-440's used, with good tread tho. After 19,000 miles, think they still have 19,000 miles left. I do careful pleasure driving, with tires mounted on rear of a front wheel drive light car. Dry pavement handling is good. On wet pavement, my front wheel drive car, which normally has understeer, now has oversteer, because the Sears tires lose grip gradually, before the front different brand tires lose grip. Altho I would prefer more grip in the rear, I like that my front wheel car now has oversteer. The Sears MC-440 tires are quiet, smooth, & pleasant to drive.
I was happy with the performance and tread life of the MC 440 so when I needed new tires I bought the same thing. They are a Cooper tire I came to find out. Love the Coopers on my wife's car so this was a no-brainer for my daughters car. I would recommend them!By submitting a review, each person received a sweepstakes entry.
These tires are exactly what they say they are....quiet. Not sure about tread life yet as they are still new but as much as I will be driving the car they will probably last a while.
Well...bought 7 new tires for two cars for $1000(great Goodyear & good Cooper), which got me to look at used tires(yeah, yeah.... a hex on me) for my Hyundai Accent. On the front, got a Bridgestone Potenza(free) & a Hankook(from my larger car) & two Mastercraft MC-440's for the rear, all tires much larger than OE tires for the Accent. After 10,000 miles, all the tires make a well balanced Accent combo, cornering well, almost snappily..... on dry pavement. In wet weather, with the Bridgestone low on tread, the Hankook with less than half tread, & the 440's with MORE than half tread.....the 440's progressively give up traction in hard cornering. In essence, an under-steer front wheel drive car (which is almost a universal characteristic), has now become a vehicle with progressive over-steer. I love the quick dry cornering & easily corrected wet cornering. But again, the 440's have less wet traction than Bridgestone & Hankook tires. Now my story is a great comparison of tires.
Ordered and received tires promptly. Communication was great. Tires mounted and installed. Another satisfied customer.
Great tires, I going to end up buying some food my father some day here soon
I have had great luck with Mastercraft Glacier Grip snow tires, and as of last fall they were made in the U.S.A. How disappointed I was to find this new tire was made in china.
It's going to be a year of purchase, I had put 9432 miles Tires thread looks new. Will buy them again,good price Good quality, good for an unrecognized brand
