Yes you can,
But Car battery designed, high ampere(A) in short time duration (t) (For Starter motor) but solar batteries (especially deep cycle) designed , low ampere for long time duration. Some maintenance free (VRLA) batteries also recommend for solar systems.
So car batteries not recommend for advanced solar systems

thx
