I also rotated my pusher, spare and hack wheel when I first got my bike. Lsted a long, long time. Only drawback was the hubs did wear differently so it was always an adjustment after. Mostly the pusher being the most out of line with the other two.
With my current tires (K37's) I just change the pusher tire nowadays.

Never mind I thought you were taking about the spare on the hack.....seen your post later and you said you have no spare so disregard the text below :oops:

On mine (05 T) you don't pry the the "plastic cover" off it is actually a bolt in its self. Use the spanner wrench. Wrench with the two pins on it to go into the holes in the "round thing" holding the spare on... Sorry I'm not quoting things to be a duche',,, just don't know how to explain things sometimes just don't pry, it unscrews off. Good luck I'm sure you can figure it out. :cheers:

It's all good. I appreciate the tips. Got it all figured out including the brake shoes. I didn't have much choice. They fell out when I pulled the pusher off.
