Anyone have any experience with the Mastercraft MSR for plowing snow or running on heavy duty trucks, specifically on packed snow and ice and deep snow

Looks like a tweaked discoverer M+S

I think I would go Grabber Arctic LT first..

I'm a fan of the grabbers as well. Do you base your statement off of first-hand knowledge with both tires, or are you just a general tire fan?

Look at the Hercules Avalanche X-Treme for heavy duty E rated tires, I have the LT235/80R17 on my 2500 Diesel for the winter months and they are awesome. I normally run LT265/70R17 all terrains the other three seasons, way better traction in the winter running a true snow tire.

The cooper tire those mastercraft are based off of are below average for winter tires.

The general tire I mentioned is very new and updated.

I did previously have general altimax arctic and like them.

Cooper has some new winter tires coming for next winter.. I am sure they will be massively better.
than their old model discoverer M+S (which I also had a long time ago)

I see what you're saying. I guess I'm basing my opinion off of what I have heard from plow guys. Where the Cooper/Mastercraft is a tried-and-true design loved by plow operators.

We typically get blasted in March as our one last storm. Winter is never over till sometime in April here where I live. And then it's still cool til early June. laugh

I have no experience in using them in plow service.

but like anything what are they comparing them too and what is their criteria?

I would go with the cooper discoverer A/TW over their 15 year old snow discoverer M+S

Not saying it wouldnt provide good service.
