M5 Spare tire

had my M5 since Aug last year - of course loving it - but - I'm really goosey about taking it on extended roadtrips WITHOUT A SPARE TIRE !

searches for spare tire info haven't revealed anything so I've ordered an inexpensive aftermarket wheel (front size), will mount one of my spare Michelin PSs on it and see if there are any "issues" when it's mounted on the rear

this would only be a "get me to somewhere" should a blow-out occur during one of my adventures

the wheel should be here this coming week so I'll take the car down and have them (Discount Tire) mount the tire then we'll put it on the rear and see if it works

anyone else tried this ?

or.....comments about the feasibility of doing a spare this way ?
