Mastercraft Tires is raising all-season performance to a whole new level with the launch of the Mastercraft Avenger Touring LSR – an all-season premium touring tire. Mastercraft is dedicated to continually finding better ways to meet and exceed consumers’ expectations. That same spirit of innovation can be found in the Touring LSR. Featuring a newly-formulated performance compound, the Touring LSR is derived and inspired from ultra-high performance tire technology delivering improved all-season performance and handling.
The new Touring LSR comes in two all-season tread design options: a four-rib (T rated) and a five-rib design (H and V rated) with a size lineup that offers exceptional value to luxury sedan, minivan and crossover owners looking for excellent all-weather performance. From striking new styling and high-tech features to high performance grip and all-weather handling, the Touring LSR represents a new standard for the touring tire category. This new generation tire achieves these results using technology that Mastercraft engineers fine-tune and improve every day. Countless hours were spent testing and refining, and testing again. The end result is a distinctive tire with improved handling performance in wet or dry driving conditions, in addition to enhanced stability and excellent tread life.
Perhaps the most dramatic example of innovative technology in the new Touring LSR is its advanced tire construction which utilizes several design features that work in concert to provide enhanced tire performance. This tire’s state-of-the-art engineering package delivers superior ride comfort and responsive handling while reducing noise, in addition to added control in wet or slippery conditions. This construction represents the latest step in engineering excellence and will inspire ultimate confidence in drivers delivering high performance grip. This cutting-edge engineering contributes to a quiet ride, while the coupled silica tread results in sure handling and all-season traction.
The open shoulder design is another perfect example. This design utilizes lateral slots and strategic siping to create biting edges for all-season traction, improved wet corning performance and excellent handling in the snow. The high density sipes ensure improved stopping and extra grip on wet and snow covered roads. These features and many others come together to make the Touring LSR one of the best of the best in the touring tire category.
The Touring LSR has treadwear ratings from 640 AA (14 inch) to 780 AA – one of the industry's highest Uniform Tire Quality Grading for a T-speed rated touring performance tire. That means it's built to last. But that's only half the story. In addition to a long list of innovative and advanced features, the new Touring LSR offers a head-turning premium appearance. This tire utilizes ventless technology in the tread area, exhibiting a crisp, clean appearance, emphasizing simplicity and style in a modern package.
The Touring LSR also features a sporty black sidewall (and a white pinstripe sidewall that is available in a 225/60R16 T-rated size) with detailed lettering. The tire sidewall includes an extended bead filler for impressive handling capabilities, lane change and cornering ability. The Touring LSR is offered in 29 sizes in the T rated, and 29 sizes in the H and V rated, ranging from 14- through18-inch diameters, and will be produced at the company’s Tupelo, Miss. and Albany, Ga., manufacturing facilities.
One of the best aspects of owning Mastercraft tires is the confidence that comes in knowing Mastercraft backs your purchase. In fact, the Touring LSR comes with an impressive warranty. The T-rated Touring LSR features a limited 80,000 mile treadwear protection warranty, while the H and V rated offer a 60,000 mile warranty. Add to that, Mastercraft offers a free 45-day road test on the new Touring LSR to assure complete consumer satisfaction.
