These are full time 4WD vehicles so the spare needs to be the same size as the tires on the truck. The spare wheel diameter can be different so long as the diameter of the tire is the same or at extreme most within 0.2" of them.

If you're not rotating your spare into use on a regular basis, you will end up with a situation where the spare is a different (larger) diameter than your other tires. If the difference is great enough, it could cause problems. I'm not sure how much of a difference there needs to be to create issues with the drivetrain.

Is rotating all 5 tires a normal GX 460 service ?

It depends on your mechanic. I have a good one who made a permanent note in my file to always to a 5-wheel rotation when they rotate the tires. Probably in your best interest to request it every time you get your tires rotated.
