"Potential conversation hijack but mostly related, has anyone here done a 5-tire rotation schedule? Do you think I could get the dealer to do it for my JL? I might be too worn down already on the first 4 but I'm wondering if it could extend the need to get new tires a bit and if I decide to go bigger on the next batch, I don't have a pristine 33" that I need to sell."
How many miles do you already have on the 4 that are on the ground? Assuming you have a full-size matching spare, almost any place that does rotation and balance will include the 5th tire as part of the rotation per customer request assuming the mileage is not significantly different. Modern traction control systems and vehicle stability control are much more sensitive to different size tires than back in the analog days. Worth asking - if you only have 5k, maybe 10k miles difference with the spare, it might be doable.
