E90 spare

Sorry if this question has been asked a thousand times before. I have a 320d ef on a 2011 plate, I want to get some refurb work done on the wheels when the weather improves but the e90 doesn’t come with a spare and I don’t fancy leaving it standing on an axel stand, so my question is if I buy an e46 space saver off eBay will it fit ?. Thanks for any advise.

E90 bolt circle is 5x 120 mm. I would at least compare the E46 bolt circle as a starter. the easiest nd cheapest thing to do is go to salvage yard and buy an E60 compact spare. I've gotten them for about $40 generally.

Bolt patterns are the same, as is the hub diameter. If it'll clear the brakes and be of a useable offset...not sure. Are you talking about just bolting it on and parking the car, or are you planning on driving on it while the other wheel is being refurbished?

A 17" spare from a 330i E46 fitted nicely on my 325i E90.
