17"spare for 18" tires

Running on 193m 18" tires, 225 40 R18 and 255 35 R18, try to change them to no-RFT, can I use 225 45 R17 RF(159) for spare?
Thanks.

Look at getting the BMW compact spare. I have the compact spare tire from the e60 in my trunk. It even clears the brakes without a spacer. It came with a little holder for the accessories to change out the wheel too.

Thanks.
Yes, I'm running the same size on my E91. You can get the accessories holder that will fit in the back of the rim you are using as a spare to save even more room.
