I generally find they last just as long as each other...but obviously the thick ones are a lot cheaper ($5 vs $15). But if you're not getting many punctures...the thin ones only take 1/2 the space of the thicker ones, but you have to be careful how you pack them as they're likely to get damaged bouncing around in the saddlebag or scuffing up with the toolkit etc...they almost need to be in their own plastic bag.
