tire wear with auto locker

i have 5 mtrs.. however my "spare" has seen far fewer miles then the other 4 how much extra size is too much for the auto locker? if i wanted to put the spare back in the rotation

the reason i ask is i cannot find my style MTRs anymore so just wearing out the 4 of then then buying 4 new is no longer an option.

Don't understand why this is not an option. Yes, the old MTRs are no longer available, but if you are only doing a 4 tire rotation there is no reason the spare pattern has to match what's on your jeep. Or if you are uncomfortable doing it you'd have no trouble selling the individual tire and you buy 5 new ones.

well i have 5 33/12.50/r15 dunlop MTs in my garage i cannot give away... i cannot post int he classified section but at this point they are free to anyone who comes and picks them up.

i also wanted to start doing a 5 tire rotation again just to make the tires last a bit longer. My spare is about 90% tread where the others are 60% i just do not know how much more is too much for the locker. I can post pictures of tread depth if it helps.
