It is definitely recommended to change the tracks when putting a new garage door in. A track is not that expensive, and each is designed to support the specific weight of a door. In other words, if your new door is heavier than the old one, you’re looking at having a major issue down the line.
Garage doors also come in different thicknesses as well. If your garage door track is not set-back the proper distance your door will either wedge in the opening, or sit-back too far and leave wide gaps.
Some track is adjustable, but it usually takes a lot longer to modify old garage door track than it does to replace it.
Additionally, your new track will also come with a warranty.
