I did 21900km on the rear before I replaced it. I had a serious off that totaled the bike (and my wrist) at 90 663km. The front was still good (I actually had one on back order).
Back then I would say I did about 80/20 tar/gravel. When I did gravel though it wasn’t just unsealed roads, it was offroad as well. Didn’t get a lot of chance to do mud and really soft beach sand, but it seemed to cope well with loose rocks.
