I always use the same offset all around, except for the rr. I pull it in 1" from the rest. So I carry a beadlock rr, and a few non beadlock's for the others.

It all depends on how many tires I have left that hold air and how many wheels I have that are still straight.LOL Usually three or four.

I carry one right rear spare, and one other spare...right rear is a beadlock and different offset, other 3 are the same...so far has worked well for me!

We carry as many as 10 or 12 depending on where we're going. For years we ran 4 off's on all four corners, we went to a three on the RR because the RR trailing was rubbing. When we started running the Harris mod, they suggested using the offsets to change the performance of the car, being open minded we invested in a large number of wheels and tires. I'm still not sure that it's that big of a deal. With the exception of the RR, I don't think the offsets effect the car as much as moving some weight or cranking on the weight jacks. Shocks have been effective in getting the car to perform better. It might just be me, but I think I'm going to cut back on the wheels and offsets, I think fresh rubber on the car is more important than a trailer full of wheels.......just my thoughts

I carry just the minimum. Three spares. One 4" backset (beadlock) and the rest are 3". Also, one NEW, unmounted tire to use in any position. Stagger is minimal, if any. Works for me.
