Buying new tires, do I need new value stems and TPMS rebuild kit?

I am buying new tires online, there are 2 recommended optional items:

TPMS Rebuild Kit
Valve Stems

Do I need any of those? I found some info online that the TPMS Rebuild Kit include valve stems already? So do I need to order either of those or both?

you need both. If you don't order them online, ur installation shop has them. They're usually around $7-10 each.

IIRC, the TPMS kits include the valve stems.

In my case, I decided to have the shop supply them (they usually have all the parts in hand). Adding the TPMS rebuild kit to my last tire order added an extra $10 to the shipping charge, which seems rather high for an envelope with 1/2 ounce of parts in it.

I am on my third set of tires. I did not use new valve stems or get the TPMS rebuilt or replaced. In fact, my indy shop recommended against it. YMMV
