Cooper Tire is expanding its Mastercraft line of premium light truck tires with a new addition - the Courser CXT. The Courser CXT is a rugged, hard-working light truck tire that is engineered to handle rough off-road conditions, while maintaining highway traction through all four seasons.

The Courser CXT features advanced technology, including a unique silica-rich tread compound for great all-season grip and tread wear on the highway, solid traction on off-road terrains, and durable cut and chip resistance for sharp gravel roads. Its variable full-depth siping increases wet traction, while providing extra biting edges for enhanced off-road traction. In addition, the Courser CXT is built to last and offers a Duo-Tech 2 two-ply carcass construction for strong performance. Its large tread elements and blocky design helps to resist abnormal wear while enhancing tread stability and durability.

The Courser CXT is available in 29 of the industry's most popular sizes ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters. It is designed for today's light trucks (up to one ton) and high-powered torque vehicles.
