Spare Tire

What is recommended or thoughts on changing out spare tire? Change it when other tires are bought I think mine is about 8ys old never been on the ground. I forgot about it when I bought the others 3 yrs ago

Most consider 5 years the most age they want on a tire. But I don't know anyone who has much experience with older tires that are used as a spare. Note that I mean, you have a blowout, put on the spare and drive to the nearest tire dealer.

Also, keep it covered from the sun with a full cover and out of all sunlight.

I replaced my tires at 2 years but kept the spare which is a C vs. a D rated as I will never go further and with great care to the nearest Goodyear dealer.
