Spare Tire Rotation

I have the '315/70r17 bfg all terrain' tires & I did include the spare tire in the rotation after 15k, is it okay!? these tires seem to wear slowly..

Spare --> Rear-Left

Front-Right --> Spare

Front-Left --> Rear Right

Rear-Right --> Front-Left

Rear-Left --> Front-Right

there is currently a slight sound but hopefully it will fade away later..

A five tire rotation is fine however you may want to rotate them closer to 3-5K instead of waiting that long. The treads are going to be more even all around providing a better ride.

Thanks for the quick reply, yes I should start doing that closer.

35 inch MTR's on 15 inch wheels = every 3000 miles = 5 tire rotation.

+1

In fact, I just had mine done at DT this morning for the first time. I'm at 3,200 miles.

Might want to rethink this pattern and follow the image provided above.
