rotating spare tire

Hey the previous owner didn't rotate the spare so its brand new. The other 4 have les than 10k On them. Should I rotate the spare into the bunch or is the size difference going to be a problem? . When the 4 tires are done I need to buy 5 new tires because I'm changing rim size.

similar issues here except my spare is a different brand than my other 4 so I'm leaving the cover on till I can buy 5 new tires.

I would rotate it in. 10K shouldn't be enough wear to make much difference.

I'd say if you intent to change out all 5 tires anyway, you might as well go ahead and get some use out of that spare. Put your best "used" tire on the rack as your spare, in case you need it.

Ok it is more preferable to put the unused spare on the front or back? I don't want to run into any problems with binding because the tires are slightly different sizes.

I'm going wheeling tomorrow so it would be helpful to know

Thanks
