Chains wear and stretch a little - the guides wear etc. A timing chain car with 150-180,000 miles on it which you want to have 100% zero worry regarding the old timing gear and you plan on driving the car for a long time is worth the effort.

However most people who have cars in the 150-180K range have reached the point where the vehicles age and the cost of all the other old stuff like shocks and bushings etc they just decide to drive it till something major fails at which point they go find a new car.

So really it all depends on how long you plan on keeping it the condition of the car otherwise and how much money your willing to spend on it to make the car just that more reliable etc. I we had not sold our old land cruiser I would have done the timing chain and gear at 180K with the intention of us having it another 10+ years.
