I recall in a conversation with Peter Boal that he said many of the young men the most advanced men's class at SAB could do triple tours.
They aren't common in choreography though, in my opinion because it's almost impossible to tell them without close observation from a double tour. But then again, as far as I'm concerned regarding pirouettes, in the choreographer's toolbox, there is "single", "double" and "multiple". Any number more than four has about the same effect, so why specify?
