What are your thoughts on rotating the spare tire in with the pair on a single axle trailer? All three are same size, brand, and pretty similar wear. We have a 90 mile round trip to the lake a few times each month.

2 thoughts on this. If you constantly rotate all 3 tires will last longer, but keep in mind any tire over 5 years old is subject to dry cracking (dry rot) and eventually will fail.

If you keep your spare covered and out of the sun, leave the 2 tires on the ground and eventually just buy one tire, using your spare as the other and save the best old tire for a spare.
