I have been using Schwalbe big apples. They last about 5000km on a Cetma cargo bike. Schwalbe marathons last even longer, but don't ride as nicely.
I have worn out kenda krad, primo comet and v-monster, maxxis hookworms, and other 20" tires and none of them came close to the Schwalbes for durability. I am not sure if rubber density is the only factor in the longevity of tires and I have no idea what it is in any of my tires. 1.5 years is a long time for me, but I put lots of mileage on my bikes.
