TPMS question

I am replacing the tires on my 2007 coupe with original TPMS sensors. I've read that the batteries in the sensors only last 5-6 years. Would I be better off buying new sensors now before I pay to have the tires mounted and balanced as to avoid the headache and extra cost of having to have them unmounted and then remounted later on?

Why not wait until you need new tires. You can also use RS Technik TPMS.

It is good idea to replace TPMS together to avoid future headache.

Ivan, I don't think you understand what I am asking here....
My TPMS sensors are 6 years old.... should I replace ALL OF THEM now or wait until the batteries die and then replace them all? I want to avoid the cost and hassle of remounting tires if the batteries will just die shortly after I mount them this spring...

They have batteries? I did not know that... I changed my rims from 162 to 189's couple of years ago and I think they came off from an 08 so they are about 5 yrs old.
