My experience with Armadillos is that they last forever and nothing ever puts a hole in em. I don't really record my distance, but I had a set of armies($30/ea) for 2 years on my daily(approx 10-20mi/day not including longer rides) in college and only took em off for some lighter tires once I moved out to the country-no city hazards like in college. When i took em off they were not very worn down and I gave em to a friend who still rides em on his city beater- it's been three years since then.
Every tire model has a bad batch once or twice. It's hard not to condemn them to the "don't buy again" list after your experience, but if you ever run accross another set for a good price give them another shot.
