Baja Claw directional question

What kind of spare is advisable to run with these directional tires? A non directional tire of the same size or another claw? Whats the effect of running one of these backwards on the street?

I'm a ways off from needing new tires but I keep wondering about this.

Thanks

They might be noisier running them backwards.

I just kept a non-directional from my last set of tires as my spare.

When you have a non-directional on with your regular set of directional tires, people know it's a spare. When you have a backwards mounted directional on that's a spare, people think you messed up mounting a tire.

I was mainly thinking short term. Finishing a trail or getting home after a flat. Can't rotate it in either way so thinking a non directional less expensive spare would be the way to go.
