Can I tow a caravan with an emergency spare wheel fitted?

As Toyota do not supply a 17-inch steel rim, I have been sold a 16-inch with a 205/60R16 92V tyre for my Avensis. Will it be legal to use this tyre to tow a caravan?

It is legal to use it as an 'emergency spare' restricting your speed to 50mph or less. I would be very cautious about towing with it fitted.
