There really isn't text book answer for this as it all depends on your driving style and the environment you're driving in.

You may want to think about upgrading to a bearing set from FastEddy or Boca Bearings. Also a RPM Blaster and Moo-Cleaner and Moo-Slick from @The Cow will really help extend the life of your bearings too with regular cleanings.

I replace bearings at the very first bit of felt roughness, bearings are cheap.
I get them from AvidRC.com, most are $1 each, and are good quality.
