Tow Dolly Tire Rotation Question

We are about to start out on our first trip in our Class C and will be towing a Prius on a Tow Master Dolly. We will be out for nine weeks and plan to cover over 10,000 miles. We bought a spare for the tow dolly and will start the trip with new Maxxis Trailer tires on all three rims. I was thinking of rotating the tires every 3,500 miles so that all three tires will wear at the same rate. Any suggestions on how to rotate them?

do not rotate, if they are wearing poorly you may not see it because you are rotating the tires, I run mine in the same position and have 50,000 miles on them. Next spring I will purchase 2 new ones and the will stay in place just as these have been.

If you insist on rotating, spare to drivers side, drivers to passenger and passenger to spare. Or if you prefer do it clockwise, spare to passenger, passenger to driver, driver to spare.

Just as an FYI, in all our travels we have not had a spare and have never had a flat tire.
