Q: tires on 2002 Lexus ES300

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My 2002 ES300 is ten years old and I have never replaced the stems and valves on my tires. How often should I do this?
Every time tires are replaced. As a part of every tire installation, the valve stems should be replaced also. Like tires, rubber valves get old and degrade over time. As expensive as tires are getting these days, ignoring something as inexpensive as a valve stem could be costly if the stem fails and ruins a new tire.
