Another aspect of this is to actually go through the motions of changing a tire in your driveway to make sure everything works out. Any of the high end or aftermarket wheels won't accept a cross-type lug wrench and may only accept a thin wall socket. Also knowing proper jack placement ahead of time is well worth knowing.

My brother had a spare tire for a trailer for several years without needing it. One day I took a close look at it and the wheel turned out to be a Ford Expedition 6 lug wheel (6x135) which sure as heck isn't going to fit on his 6 lug trailer (6x5.5). Imagine the potential gasket-blowing fit I helped him avoid by catching this before he had a flat on the road.
