Default spare tire with aftermarket wheels?

according to tire rack stock re92 tire is at 847 revs per mile. re960 same size as stock. 847 revs per mile.

my new tires say 841 revs per mile.

is this difference enough to mess anything up should I need to run the stock spare?

Run the stock spare if you need to. Just don't drive too fast on the spare or too far. It will cause additional wear on the diffs, but it's not a big deal for short term use.

yeah.

found 1 thread by search and it mentioned that the stock donut was already at a reduced rotation and that someone elses extra .5% wouldnt do anything over the already ~5% for stock.

the 50mph temp thing is understood. just looking ahead should things happen.
