I've got a thread going in the wheels section but it doesn't seem to get much traffic. So I thought I'd broaden the topic and post it here.
How much mixing and matching can you do with wheels? And how close do they need to be to avoid problems? I have 4 matching wheels, but my spare is different - I can find wheels that are very nearly the same but want to make sure I'm not going to cause problems. If worst comes to worst, is it ok to use a spare with different backspacing and width to get out of a trail?

As long as the spare is the same diameter as the others it doesn't matter. It'll get you to the tire shop anyway...

yes. the only issue is with diferent diameter tires, then only if you have a locker.
