No, they are completely incompatible. Bimmerzone.com has a solution that several of us have now.

You need to take the wheel off using the jack you probably don't have (I got one off ebay) and take it somewhere to get repaired. At this time of night you are out of luck. Oh and really you need to replace tyres in, at the very least, pairs so if your blown one is half worn, you should replace both.

I'm up in Cambridge on Thursday for work but not in the M5 :(

BMW Space Saver Spare Tire: Bimmerzone.com

It still takes up some boot space, but less than your full-size wheel (and better than nothing...). Not sure what postage to UK might cost ??????

Good old Dad, coming to your rescue! Mine's always pretty good at roadside rescues too, but not sure I'd rely on him as a permanent spare-tyre solution :biggrin:
