Durability is probably not the most important thing to consider when shopping for tires. You should figure out where you are riding and choose the right kinds of tire. On city streets, you would want a tire that is rather smooth to reduce friction and it allows you to ride faster or ride with less effort. On a dirt road, you want good grip so you won't get stuck or lose control. So you want tires that can handle loose gravel or sandy soil better.

Ask 100 cyclists (MTB'ers) and get ready for 99 different answers. A LOT of a tire's durability depends on two things... 1) How well (or poorly) the owner takes care of them. 2) The terrain. Naturally, riding on manmade & smoother off-road trails won't be as hard on the tires as a pure mountain biking.
Another thing you have to consider... 26" MTB tires are rapidly becoming OBSOLETE! Such is the case with this NOBBY NIC from Schwalbe. https://www.schwalbetires.com/bike_tires/off-road_... The only sizes available are 27.5" and 29". Many cyclists (no matter what riding style) consider Schwalbe to be the toughest & longest lasting of them all. In reality, any of the major brands are good to great...Vittoria, Continental and even some of the top-of-the-line Kenda tires.
