I have lost track but I think I have about 3k miles on my Schawlabe Marathon Plus. Not a single problem, and they are not wore enough to even think about replacing them yet. The reason I went to them was I probably had 20 flats a year before.

Downsides: They are heavy, costly, and can be tough to get on some rims.
