Replace TPMS Sensors?

I'm changing the front tires on my E90 and want to know if is advisable to change the TPMS sensors as well. I bought the car used, but as far as I know they have never been replaced. I am not getting any warnings but fear that the batteries may die before the tires need to be changed again. My car is a 2007 and I put about 10k miles on it per year.

Thanks.

We've been seeing TPMS sensor batteries lasting anywhere from 4-8 years. It sounds like you may be very close to being due to replace them.

Thanks Gary. I was the one who emailed you yesterday about pricing. I'm on the fence about changing them. I do plan on getting new wheels within in the next year hopefully, with which I'll get new TPMS sensors. I might just risk it, and if they go faulty I suppose I could code them out temporarily.
