Heavy Duty Tubes - How Long should they last

I was just thinking the other day how long do tubes(Heavy duty) last in a tyre these days. I know it most likely depends on a combination of tube type, tyre, how the bike is ridden etc., however on an average what sort of mileage would you expect to get and also do they deteriorate over time? I have only got 30K Kilometers on these tubes.

You'll stick a nail in it before it blows from age.

i can only go by hours but i use UltraHeavyDuty tubes and they get passed from bike to bike and have well over 500 hours. There is some deterioration but still going strong.

36500 on ours so far, the front has fur balls rolling around inside ....sounds funny.

These tubes won't come out until they are stuffed and as long as they hold air then they are not stuffed, same as any other tube .

Just changed new MT21 front, did a visual and it looked perfect, black and round
