I had no problem with my tyres either for 7 years, then they stated to show sidewall signs of time to change. I also looked on the link in the OP it had no reference to the spare wheel.
While we are veering off topic to flying I had better say that when ever possible I use BA.(unless flying over the Hudson)


Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

It must be assuming that the spare remains new and as a spare, no wear no need to rotate it.

I change my Golf front tyres to back when they start to show wear. The idea is to get em to all wear out at the same time. But the van does not cover the miles.
I often see a brand new looking wheel and tyre for sale at boots but you know they are many years old not used spare. Highly dangerous unless only used as a spare.

Thanks for that

I like the registration and impressed with the self-build - from a kit I presume, but if not even more impressed.

I was based at Lydd on the car ferries in 1967 and 1969, now pretentiously called 'Ashford International Airport' . We called our training airfield at Scone, Perth 'Balbeggie International' - but we were joking.
