Can a donut spare be used on a front wheel of the C-Max?

 

I have a donut spare for my C-Max.  I have had to use it once on the right rear wheel after when the original full size tire had a hole blown in its sidewall after hitting some road debris.  The donut spare worked great on the rear wheel, but I don't know if the donut spare could be used on one of the front wheels.

It worked for me, however, I assume because my donut was a bit smaller than the other front wheel, it pulled when I hit the brakes toward the spare.  If I had lots of time, on getting a flat, if my tire fix kit didn't do the job, I would put the donut on the back and take a full size wheel up to the front.

 

This is my post on the pulling.

Update: Note: I just re-read that post. This test of the donut on the front was done with traction control off.
