Multi Fit Wheel as a Full Size Spare?

I have an 08' 2dr focus. The tire spec is 205/ 50 / r16.

I selected my vehicle and this is what came up http://tires.canadiantire.ca/en/whee...wheel/0095987/

A multi fit wheel, I just wanted the cheapest one as a spare. Any one have experience with these things, any good?

Looks like it should work just fine for a spare.

Check Craigslist too, you might be able to find something really cheap!

Looks like these would do well for winter wheel replacements.

How 'bout a wrecking yard? Kind of spendy for a steelie.
