Rigida Andra Rims?

Has anyone here used the Rigida Andra Tungstein Carbide coated rims sold at SJS cycles? I am wondering how they perform in wet/snowy conditions and how long they are likely to last.
My current set of Mavic EX721 Ceramic rims has developed a crack in the sidewall of the rear rim, after 3 years and around 20.000km - a lot of those in very gritty, wet Icelandic winters... So, until I upgrade my bike to disk brakes (requiring a new frameset) I have to get myself a new set of tough rims. One of the problems with the ceramic rims is that in the wet their braking performance deteriorates a lot, something like 80 to 90% and in snow it's even worse.

    Not used that rim, but have had a generally positive experience of Rigida rims (we have two bikes with Chrina, and I used to have ZAC2000 rims on another bike).
