Need new tires + TPMS

I have a 2005 Liberty Ltd. and it needs new tires. I'm not concerned about winter performance as I have a set of winter tires. The originals are the Goodyear Wrangler HP. So should I stay with the same ones? The spare has never been used to I would like to have a matching set. There have been a mixed review on the Wrangler HP but I personally have not found anything wrong with them.

The TPMS are 6 years old now. I read the battery lasts anywhere from 7-10 years. I don't know if I should replace them. They are kind of pricey here in Canada. The dealer quoted me $89 per sensor. The place where I can get my tires and the TPMS is Canadian Tire. They sell the Orange Electronics sensors for much less but will they work with my Jeep? So it would be convenient to get it all done in one place.

And what about the spare tires sensor? Does that have to be replaced too if I were to get the Orange Electronics sensors? I don't want to have some signal interference between the 4 new sensors and the original in the spare.

I highly recommend Goodyear Duratracs.

They are outstanding in the snow and ice - I bought a set last year and was extremely happy with the snow we had last winter.

They also look pretty good on any jeep.
