spare tire question

My spare tire is a 38 15.50 mickey thompson mtz that is a direct match to my winter set of wheels. I just bought a set of 36 15.50 20 mickey thompson mtz for my summer tires. Will I still be able to use my spare tire with the 36's. I will not use it for a prolonger period of time but only if I get a flat and just to get home. Will it hourt anything because its only 1 inch difference in height which equates to around a half inch of noticible difference betwen the two tires.

Thanks alot; I would feel much better about carryign the spare if I could actually use it.
