Have around 57K miles on mine and looks good. I inspect it from time to time, and so far, so good. Only adjust at tire changes, although once I readjusted it after had a tire installed by a shop I wasn't familiar with. Sure enough, they had it way too tight. If you want to break one that's the best way. Noe does my tires changes now. No worries. Like @Chattanooga_Mark , I have a new one in the wings. Guarantees I'll never have to change it.
