Any reason other than additional cost on why you're not swapping the 5th?

I would want a matching spare...especially if they're giving you $150/tire in trade.

The diameter is the same between the LT275/65R18 and the P255/70R18 at 32.1". When I decide to replace my wheels in a year or two, I don't want to spend the money on a 5th wheel, especially if I end up going with some between $275-$325 a piece. So I'm not concerned about the spare tire/wheel matching the other four. If I get a flat tire, I'll only use the spare to get me to the tire shop to fix the flat tire like I did with my previous truck. I guess it comes down to whether or not having a cool looking matching 5th tire/wheel combo is worth the additional cost. Is it worth it or is there any other reason why you'd want to match the spare?

I didn't ask about them buying the 5th tire, but the first tire shop I went to already had two sets of stock Wrangler Sahara tires that they've been sitting on. They said it's not a tire size that they can move easily.

I didn't realize they were the same diameter, so aside from that I guess not. Especially if you're going to go in a different direction in 1-2 years.

I ordered on 9/10. I have my VON. When I try the VOTS hack the web page pops up and it says loading. It never stops loading. Is it too soon for it to be in the system?

I really wish my Tank could leave the state of OHIO! Missouri isn't that far away. Last I saw it had only moved 50miles from the darn factory in 3 days.

re: 2015 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Just ordered today 9/12/2014

I am so excited Now the waiting begins...

This is my first Jeep 4x4 but I do have a 1967 Kaiser Jeep 6x6 Deuce 2-1/2 ton ex-military truck so I guess I was already a part of the Jeep family.

Tank
Black Hard Top
Black Fenders
