Can I run one e46 wheel on e93 to get to shop?

I've been meaning to replace my bald rear tires recently, and today one of them went flat on the way to work, metal threads showing and all. I got new tires waiting on me at the shop about 5 miles away, but no way to get my car there.

I currently have an e93 with 235/35/19 all the way around. Can I put on a rear wheel/tire from a 2004 330i to replace the blown tire so that I can drive to the shop?

As long as the wheel fits and the tire size is the same or very close.

Ya I'm going to assume they have the same bolt patterns. Might be a bit smaller diameter though. But with an open diff I don't think that will matter.

I would worry about the fronts clearing the 335i rotors, but I'm sure the rears are fine.

Don't you know the tire sizes? I wouldn't worry about it if they are a little different but they should be close.
