How long / miles should I get?

I know this depends on a lot, but assuming I have some decent soft / med compounds, do a fair bit of back roads and not including any track days, but park the bike up outside the house, how long is rubber good for.
Say 5K per year, tops.
May - October useage here, and in storage during the winter.
I think my rubber is "off" but she's for sale so they look fine and ride well enough - so no inkling to replace them myself.

I ran Dragon corsas on an ST4s and they had lost their profile and gone off after 1500 miles, although were legal upto about 2000 miles.

Standard Diablos on a 996sps will do close to 4000 miles and they're great for the use i put them to.

No problem with laying them up over winter as long as you either raise both wheels, or roatate them every week to prevent flat spot if you leave them on the ground in same position for 6 months.
