Stainless wire rigging condition

What should we be looking for as far as wire fatigue and how can we see it. I have kept a close eye on my rig and I see no cracks no broken wire no rust so how do we know when its time for new gear.I do keep my wire clean with polish as far as I can reach and I spray everything with WD40 on a regular basis but I have no way of knowing what the last owner did or how old the rig is.
