Ok just wanted to make sure I could still rotate in the spare. I know I can rotate in the other 4.

My first five wheel tire rotation was at 5000 miles and every 5000 since. Going on 21,000 miles now. You should be good.

Rotated mine in after some significant wear and an original rotation without the spare (stupid dealer). It was a little squirrelly on the road at first, but it wore a little faster and matched the other tires pretty quickly.

I did the 5 wheel rotation today at 2500 miles. I always like to get the first tire rotations early as it seems like I always get better results if I rotate at 2500 miles and then again at 5000 miles. I then increase to 5000 miles for the remainder of the tire life.

I was rotating mine every 5,000km (3,000 miles) when the missus was driving a short distance to work with lots of roundabouts (13km trip with 17 roundabouts....) and chewing the edges of the front passenger tyre. Now she has changed jobs and does a 40km trip each way mostly highway travel so I am back to 10,000km rotations (6,000 miles). I also do the "rearward cross" as in the pic in post 12.

Most tyre places down here recommend a 10,000km rotation pattern (6,000 miles)
