That is a question for your dentist - but since most wisdom tooth removal is to make room for the other teeth during othodontic treatment or because the browing-in wisdom teeth are pushing the other teeth out of alignment or your mouth just plain does not have the room for them (especially if you grow extra ones), since you are past the point where your teeth are growing in I would guess your odds are pretty good that they will never need removal.

However - if you check articles from reputable sources on the web, something like 85% have their wisdom teeth removed, not 65% - and if your wisdom teeth are not pulled you have something like a 90-95% chance of at least one causing crowding or becoming impacted - so it all comes down to how they fit into your jaw relative to the other molars.
