Next time, buy a set of FIVE tires and rotate them ALL so that every single tire, including the spare, gets used. That way, every tire in the five-set gets a break, and the whole thing last longer than a four-set. The PO of my Jeep made that same mistake, so now I have to either wear them out or blow them out (kinda nervous, as I discovered a month ago that they are about 6 years old), and I'll be sure to buy a five-set.

As long as the tires aree all the same size you can do any rotation you want.

Measure the tires. Not all tires brands are the same circumference, even if they are the same size. If there is a big enough difference it will cause binding when in 4wd.
