Is it better to rekey or change the locks?

As with any other mechanical product, locks suffer from wear and tear over time. As a result, they can be less effective also.

For this reason, it is often better to change the lock given the opportunity; this price can often be negligible between rekeying or installing a new lock. This often is the case with locking mechanisms and gearboxes also.
