Default donut spares

alright... i'm pretty sure that most bmw's come with full sized spares... what i'm looking for are some donut sized spares with a 5 x 120 bolt pattern (for a 3 series)
anyone know where i might be able to find 'em?
thanks in advance,
-chris

I have one as well with the complete mounting assembly. leatherz.com also sells a spare tire kit that it says will work on the e46 m3 so it will also work on an e36.

Ti's came with a donut spare.

You can also use a full size if you carry one of the little
compressors and deflate the spare before you put it
under the car. Common trick on the 4x4 side when you
have huge tires and still want touse the interior storage mount.
