The mini-spare provided by BMW on the E83 X3 was sized for car - the outside diameter of the spare was about the same size as the otuside diamter of a regular tire. The Book said you could run on it either 50 or 100 mi at less than 50 mph with no hard cornering. I used it a few times during the life of my e83 and never had a problem with the x-drive. Note: I did not abuse the privilege
The real question is where to you stow the spare & tools? The only solution I have seen is to place it inside the cargo compartment...and there goes your cargo space....
