Default tube life

Hi everyone,
I just recently modded a 16ls kit amp with dual 6by5ga rectifiers. With the modest current on each of the 4 diodes (about 288v @ around 50ma on each so 100 ma per tube) how long can I expect these tubes to last? How about life expectancy for the 6005 power tubes in pp config for this amp? Thanks in advance for the info!
