Wheel question regarding the 2001 330Ci M-style wheel

I have a gouge I picked up (not sure where, the fellows that put my new tires on pointed it out before they began work) and was wondering if the full sized spare wheel can replace the front wheel. I was going to swap them out (have the new ES100 put on the spare wheel)

Sorry for the poor pic quality.

Not sure exactly what your question is, it could just be my mind not working at 5 am on a sunday... Anyway.
If you are asking if the spare is the same size as the fronts, that's a yes. I'd also suggest you putting the same tire all-around.

I guess my question wasn't written very well, yes, thats what I was asking. I do have ES100's all the way around, except the spare (Conti). Thks! I'll have the wheels swapped around.

Rip,

Yup, the SP spare is the same size as the front 7.5 x 17. The rears are 8.5 x 17 so they are the odd men out.
