** The diameter and size of spares in not usually the same as the tire on the car. Space savers are designed as a limp mode to get you to the tire shop and because such short distance/duration is normal, they won't foul up your rear end diff or anything. Most have a max speed rating as well and it's often 45 to 55 mph.
Yes, you will see some idiots driving around for months at a time with a puny spare on their car and it will likely screw up the rear drivetrain in the longer term.
