Spare tire (donut ) from other models

I see people buy spares and leave them in the trunk but I don't see people with spares from other vehicles. For example will a spare from an e46 fit an e90 as far as offset and clearing calipers?

Any one?

Not looking to spend 300 for spare tire kit. I already have a jack from an e46 and breaker bar with socket. Looking for a spare

In the Bronx there are many junk yards I am sure I can find one for cheap

search the forums for confirmation, but I believe an E60 spare is what a lot of people use.

Does anyone know the specs of the E60 spare?

Forgot to mention that I'm running spacers on my car. Running h&r 25mm spacer front 20mm rear they are bolted on so worse case scenarios if I caught a flat I don't want to be forced to remove spacers. So I wonder if an e46 spare will fit due to my spacers?
