BMW 1M spare tire

I bought a spare tire for my 1M (front 245/35 R19 Rear 265/35 R19) but I think it's so small
(Continental T 125/80/ R17) does every body know if it's correct,

Thankyou

Welcome aboard !

There are two important specs to observe:

1. The spare wheel needs to be the correct offset (i.e., so it doesn`t rub when you drive)

2. The spare needs to be pretty close in overall circumference to the existing tires on the car, otherwise it will upset the DSC. You can measure this with a piece of string.

125/80/ R17 will not work as the diameter is too small and depending on what wheel its mounted on, it will probably rub against the caliper.

The 1M needs 18-inch wheels to clear the brakes ? Is this a known fact ?
