I really like the Supremes, I ran them front and back on my (heavy ass) commuter. They roll really well and I can actually notice a distinct difference in average speed (1-2kph).
Mine tend to look a bit pitted after a few years and the thin sidewalls do not like being overloaded. When I gave my girlfriend a ride with some Ortlieb bags attached the sidewall gave out. Then again, that was a 170+kg load on a 23kg bike so I was not surprised. Still, Marathon Plus can handle that sort of load without issues.

I will probably put them on my randonneur once the tires on that one are worn.
