Default Front wheel bearing life expectancy?

Hey, my first post! I am rebuilding a 2008 Mazda 3 Hatchback for my granddaughter. I am replacing the engine at 100k with one that has 30k. This required removing the CV axles, etc. My question is should I replace the front wheel bearings? Now would be the time to do it but if folks are getting 200k on them with no problems then I won’t. Thank you!

Not a common issue. Spin the wheels, listen & feel for any roughness. Otherwise, leave them alone.
