Default What is the life span of wheels?

Obviously indoor and outdoor will vary due to surface difference, but what is a reasonable amount of longeivity of wheels??

how long is a piece of string,
I"v had wheels down to the core in under 500 meters, others probably would have traveled over 100 kilometers.

even from the same set you get different life rates.

stopping techniques and speed play a big part.
if you really heat them up some just shred to bits.
temps where you can't even touch the bearing or axle.

some roads are smooth others are ultra harsh, as with sidewalks.

it's very rare for me to be on a smooth surface. and even then it's probably on a halfpipe or skatepark so their taking a lot of impact loads.
