Should valves be changed with tyres?

Auto services changed my tyres, but not valves. Is it legal?

Hi Renate,

Well, there’s no legal requirement to change the valves, but it’s such a simple and cheap process to do so, one would wonder what other corners were cut? Was your car’s tyre pressure monitor reset as well, assuming it has one? Were the wheels properly balanced? I’d go back and ask a few tough questions.
