yes they are
what are the two bolt patterns you are dealing with?
i would think you would want the wheel to match the front pattern and use the adapter for the rear (more space in the rear to move the wheel out)
is this what you had in mind?

Be sure the spare has adequate clearance for the brakes and will clear the front steering, body and suspension on both ends. The spare should provide enough height that will keep any part of the vehicle from hitting the road, even if IT is flat.
