Anybody used the High-Tec retreaded tires?

So I called out of curiousity, and the cost to my door for a set of four of their 33x12.5R15 MT's is $320. Which is just about half what I can expect to pay for any other MT. I figure with having them mounted and some bargain basement rim shopping, I can have them mounted and balanced on some 15x8's for less than $500. I know some of you are going, ick, retreads, but before you say that or start posting about all the carcasses on the highway, take a peek at their website:
High-Tec-Retreading
Their stuff seems to be pretty well made, and Four Wheeler gave them rave reviews last year when they tested a set of the 33x12.5R15 MT's. I also like their warranty:
"Warranty: 2 years or 24,000 miles workmanship & materials of the retreading process. Warranty effective with proof of purchase, non-transferable, does not cover improper tire maintenance or tire abuse. Warranty does not cover damage to vehicles due to causes other than the retreading process." I figure even if I only get 20-25,000 miles out of them, I only paid $320 for them! I can buy another set and get as many total miles as one set of BFG MT's for the same price![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Also, if you look at part of their website, they are offering these "<font color=green>Green Diamond</font color=green>" things that are supposed to increase winter and overall traction on the tires. Go to http://www.high-tec-retreading.com/diamond.html to look at it. What do you think of it? The owner told me $15 a tire extra to have the Green Diamonds in the tread. They can do it for any size, any tread of their tires. Worth the extra $15 per tire, or a bunch of hoey?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

So has anyone used these things? If so, what did you think? Have any problems with them? How long did they last? How'd they do on and off road?
