Talk about hedging your bets.
No, my bet is that they would hold up fine through the event, but repeated use like that is going to decrease the number of miles you'll get from before they eventually fail.

So if you want them to last a long time, I wouldn't use them. If you're ok with replacing them, or rebuilding them every couple of years, then you could use them like that.
