4 or 5?

Upgrading my tires in a couple of weeks. Going from 245/75/16 to
265/75/16's. Should I bite the bullet and replace all 5 for a matching set?
My current spare is pretty worn also.

Without question, save a little longer if necessary. Besides the aesthetics, you get 20% more tire life by having the extra one in the rotation.

Undoubtedly five, and do a five-tire rotation each time or the spare will soon have too much tread to include in the rotation.
