I have a 2013 JKU and need new tires. The spare has never been used. Date code for tires is 3812, or mid-September 2012. Car is always garaged, so spare tire has had minimal exposure to sun. My understanding is that the spare has TPMS.

Should I:

1. get four new tires or

2. just get three, use the spare as a primary, and use the best remaining tire as the spare?

Also (can't seem to find edit button)....

You won't save a lot of money by buying 3 tires vs four and swapping things around like that. You will save the cost of one tire, but mounting/unmounting and balancing each tire will add to labor costs (5 wheels), unless you simply mount the entire spare wheel with tire.
