Well, this is my first vehicle which required a five-tire rotation, but on all previous vehicles, the tires were rotated at recommended intervals.

On this Jeep, though, I have not rotated the spare (or any for that matter). We bought it used with 13K on the odometer and I didn't want to put a fresh tire into the rotation at that point for fear of damaging driveline components due to the difference in diameter. I could not find a reliable source that would definitively answer whether or not the 13,000 mile difference would do any harm to the ESP/ABS/Traction Control systems, so I decided to play it safe(er) and start doing a five-by swap when we get new tires... which looks like sometime next summer.

I've been checking the other four for odd wear and all seem to be wearing evenly (1/32" difference front/rear). With winter coming, I'll be keeping the "better" treads on the front to handle the snow so I feel rotating now would be pointless.
