clutch longevity

how many miles r u guys getting out of u're clutches?
I've ran a zoom zvt ceramic 13" clutch for 55k and the buttons r down to the rivets. u would think it would last longer than that or maybe I need to step up to a double disc?
what has everyone else experienced?

My stock clutch in my 2000 went 60k, southbend ceramic went 40k, luk with a feramic disk went 80k and was holding up great when I sold my the truck.

I also had terrible luck with a ceramic clutch in my cummins work truck

I do like the holding power of the ceramic and I don't slip it... pretty much let it out then step on the go pedal.
the ceramic does eat the flywheel too more so than organic. the lack of mileage is a concern especially when replacements are not cheap...
has anyone here put a 5r110 in an obs? I prefer to shift myself but maybe a built auto would be better in the long haul?

I had to replace my stock clutch at about 150K miles because a chunk of metal broke off of the pressure plate which had to be a manufacturing defect. The clutch material and flywheel itself looked brand new though. My truck is a zf-6 with stock power.

I think you are back-words South Bend uses feramic and Luk uses ceramic.
