My '01 325iT came with a donut spare tire.

I have a extra 68M wheel and tire, but it's 8.5", will that fit in the spare tire well?

Just thought i'd ask before I pull all my "stuff" out of the trunk and try it.

I'm almost certain it won't fit...My spares are 17" X 8" and the rims fit FLUSH with the trunk liner floormat, doubt there's that 1/2 inch of clearance.

A stock 245/40/17 on a 17x8.5 will NOT fit in the well and still let you drop the floor in. It'll probably float about 1/4".
