How many miles to typically change motor mounts

Hey guys. I have had some more vibrations that I used to or maybe im just paying attention now lol I figure its just induced by my mods. But then I got to thinking maybe I should swap the motor mounts because I remember reading here every now and again it could be the culprit. How many miles do you guys typically get on the stock ones before needing a swap. especially after spirited driving and such for many miles lol.
Thanks guys!

It's not about the miles, but how you abuse them.
