Why not? its just a spare!

On my M5, I carry a single full side tire/wheel in the trunk along with a E39 jack. But there is no space for even a space saver in that car.

Actually, having a spare wheel that matches my E70 would be an OK idea, just in case. I usually retain one old tire with the best tread when I get new tires- having a wheel 'in stock' back at the house might be a good idea. (So you can take off the space saver and give tirerack a few days to ship the replacemnet.) I'd still keep the space saver in the trunk.

Again, consider you may never even LOOK at it for years on end!
