Mix and Match Wheels

I've got a thread going in the wheels section but it doesn't seem to get much traffic. So I thought I'd broaden the topic and post it here.

How much mixing and matching can you do with wheels? And how close do they need to be to avoid problems? I have 4 matching wheels, but my spare is different - I can find wheels that are very nearly the same but want to make sure I'm not going to cause problems. If worst comes to worst, is it ok to use a spare with different backspacing and width to get out of a trail?

As long as the spare is the same diameter as the others it doesn't matter. It'll get you to the tire shop anyway...
