I didn't see this question asked so thought it might make a good one. If you have a visible 5th wheel that is full size like the spare on a Jeep Wrangler should that spare be included in the tire rotation? If the full size spare should be included how should the rotation be performed compared to a normal rotation?

There are several patterns of rotation for vehicles.

When a vehicle has a space saver spare then patterns of side to side, cross or front to rear are applicable.

As you have a full size spare then that can be included in the rotation and is what I would consider normal.
