My tires (35x12.5 dick cepek mud country) have about 85% tread left. Id like to rotate my spare in but im afraid its too late. What do the tire experts out there have to say about this.

Should be fine. If you had AWD, I would say no.

He does have AWD with both front and rear locker.

Good question from the OP. I would do a actual measure top to ground to see the difference and then ask.

Good point altho they are selectable and i only lock them for tough obstacles.

If it helps, there's about a 3-4 mm (yes i know, metric) difference between 100% tread and 85%.

PS: i'll take the top to ground measurements with the tire on and equal tire pressures when i get a chance.

I can't see his vehicle profile on my phone, but unless he swapped transfer cases and runs awd on the street, my point still is valid.
Offroad in 4wd it won't matter.
