    considering buying 24 235/85-16's in load range E for the season for 5 of the trucks

    who has been using them and can give an unbiased opinion?

    also, where is the best place to get them for pricing?

    Hello. I haven't bought any yet but there's a site http://www.high-tec-retreading.com/ that will add green diamonds to there compound but you have to email w/zip for a delivered price. The tires on the website are very reasonably priced and come w/a 25,000 warranty which seems kinda' low but I can hardly find any truck tires willing to offer ANY mileage warranty. The tires shown on the website don't reflect the greendiamond process price, you have to call or email the guy.
    I'll be trying them next set which will be soon. Debi

    A quote from their email:


    A little general information: we use a full grade truck rubber on all our
    tires.
    Our truck rubber contains 15 to 20 percent natural rubber, which will
    disperse
    heat better,it's more cut resistant, and gives better adhesion to the tire.

    We computer build and balance all tires.

    Tires are available with green diamonds, making them the ultimate
    all weather tire. Green diamonds are small carbide particles that
    we systematically blend throughout the tread rubber. This gives you
    traction similar to a studded tire, but with No noise and No seasonal
    restriction.
    The tires maintain their traction and ability for the life of the tread.
    This means you get superb traction on dry, wet, snowy, or icy roads.
    They can be run in all 50 states year around.

    Tires come with a two-year or 24,000 mile workmanship and material warranty,
    excluding off-road.

    We except MasterCard, Visa card, Discover card, and money orders.
    Our toll-free number is 1-877-439-0759 M-f 8 to 5.
    Alternate number 1-605-662-5145
    P.O. BOX 763 Edgemont, S D 57735

    I'm interested in the wear of these especially the ultra tractions. is the rubber as soft as a regular snow tire? I drive way to many miles to run a normal snow tire like a cooper M+S

    i was planning on mounting them on the stock 6.5" rims and keeping the michelins on the hummer h2 rims for the other three seasons

    we have four trucks in need of winter rubber this year....

    still love to talk to someone who has used them.....
