Lightbulb Do you rotate in your spare?

Been reading how some folks criss cross and rotate in spare, others recommend against it cause no tpms in spare, etc etc. Let's get some stats on what folks do w/ their spare when they rotate their tires.

Nope. Always seemed like it was more hassle than it was worth.

When I put a dent in one of my rims shortly after buying it I thought no problem, just switch it with the spare. I was disappointed to see a steel rim but now I have slightly larger tires so that's completely out of the question now.

Nope, I do not rotate in my spare. BTW, my stock spare IS equipped with a TPMS. It's annoying whenever I have to air it up in order to extinguish the low tire pressure light on the dash.

Currently i don't, only because I have a full size trail spare (40% tread). Once I buy new tires tho, I'll probably rotate all 5 since i have a matching spare rim.

Probably figure something out for the TPMS when i start doing it.

Stock was too small when I upped the tire size, so I found an extra OR wheel and put a full size matching tire on and rotate it into the mix.

My truck came with steel wheels - found a set of 5, FJ take off cheap. I rotate 5. Original spare is still the spare that rides under the truck. All 5 TPMS are in a PVC tube under the back seat.

Too much of a PIA, besides, I wouldn't want that ugly Dunlop taking away from the looks of my Wranglers.

I did but only b/c of this Do you rotate in your spare?-100_1693.jpg in the sidewall of my tire (had truck for 2 weeks), so since my tires came with nitrogen which gave me $100 hazard protection for new tire I got dealership to order me a new "rugged trail" tire....what do they order?? a "rugged terrain" tire wth, so i put original spare tire on aluminum wheel and put the rugged terrain on spare wheel. I could've made them order me the correct tire but i live 40 miles away and wasn't gonna make a second trip.
