A very long time, particularly if you donít do a ton of miles. I had 7,000 miles on my Zipp 303 rim brake Firecrests before I donated that bike to a kid on my high school MTB team. The brake track showed no signs of wear. I chose Zipp at that time (2014) because they had much more stopping power than the Rovals I tried. I believe at this point pretty much every big maker makes a reliable and sturdy brake track. Fear not!

I do have to be a little careful not to let my wheels drop into ruts in the road. That can mar the edge of the rim.
