I bought 2 Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring 245 60R18 tires last year and am considering buying 2 Mastercraft tires to replace the other 2 worn out tires. Was wondering if there's an equivalent Mastercraft tire to the Cooper CS5? And what is the price difference?

I can't imaging the price difference being high enough to justify running mismatched pairs of tires on a vehicle. There is no Mastercraft tire whose tread matches the CS5; the closest you are going to come is finding a passenger touring tire with a different tread pattern.

When I bought my CS5's they were in the low-mid tier price range. Sure you can save a few bucks going cheaper but is it worth it?

Price difference is so negligible, it's not worth it, from what I recall working in a shop that had both MC and Cooper.

Both tires are produced by Cooper, but Cooper is the superior tire getting the better compounds, R&D, etc.

Just get the cooper. You won't save enough to make it worth it, and in all honesty, the Mastercraft may not last as long, costing you money in the long run.

Don't mismatch tires, it is penny wise and pound foolish to try and save a few $$$ on one of the most important components of your vehicle which is in direct contact with the road. Even if you go to sell the car you will more then recoup the difference in money. Mismatched or unknown China brand tires are a sure sign of a car the owner has "let go". Get the Coopers, you'll sleep and more importantly STOP better.

If you have a warranty issue down the road my guess is that you will have better luck with a Cooper product.

Nokian eNTYRE is very similar to CS5, I had them mixed on mom's Jetta S/W

I like the Cooper, but the Nokian is better, and DIRT cheap on EBay

I only see the eNTYRE 2.0, which is a lil more expensive, but WORLD Class, and the C/S SUV tire.

Hope it helps.

I was told (doesn't mean it's true) that Mastercrafts were cheaper as they were made in a non-union shop.

If you are gonna be switching completely over to Mastercrafts in the long run, I'd go with the LSR Grand Touring which come in your size.

Here's the deal.....I'm looking for a new vehicle right now and there's no telling how long it will take plus I have a slow leak from a nail so I want to put the least amount of money into the vehicle right now.

If that's the case, just get the cheapest tire in your size smile

I've ran Mastercrafts before, I think they are a good budget tire I got great mileage out of them.

There is not an exact equivalent to the CS5 Ultra Touring. The Mastercraft LSR Grand Touring (in V speed rating) is the closest to it, though, and it should be safe using them together if you really can't buy the CS5. There will be some differences in the wet and winter performance between the two products.

It's most certainly NOT true.
