5 tire rotation

I finally got a full size spare. My tires have around 4,500 miles on them. Should I throw the spare into the rotation, or just keep it brand new? I plan on buying the same set when these wear out.

What is the pattern you all follow when doing a 4 and 5 tire rotate? Right now I move the rear forward, and the front back and across. Thanks

x2 on what he said. I do the 5 tire rotation to get the most out of the rubber. I am still on stock tires, trying to save for better ones later. By the time I run the stockers down I will have enough for new wheels/tires.

Five tire rotation every 6000 miles. I have 65,000 on the original BFG 32".
Tires look like they could go another 30,000. But they won't I just put on some 37".

I think it was a joke about their warranty. Just like the jeep with all the rock rash on the bottom and "never being in low range"
