Sorry, that was to easy not to pass up.
To many variables to give a concrete answer.
I have seen tubes trashed after 5 years, and some that are 20 years old and still good.
It all depends on how well they are taken care of.
Here in So Cal, the biggest wear factor is UV light.

Mine are 28 years old military surplus. Needed lots of patching, two gallons of internal sealant, and new valves.

We have repaired, retubed and refurbed plenty of these for private customers buying at navy surplus auctions.

PM me if you need info on anything.
