rim size difference

Is it uncommon to be running 15x10 rims and having a 15x8 or 15x7 rim with the same tire size for a spare?

Not if you only use it for a spare. I wouldn't rotate it in with your normal tire rotations... A different size wheel will have a different weight, back-spacing, and over all tire diameter when mounted up - all of which will have a minor impact on how your Jeep drives. That's not to say you can't do it, just that it would not be ideal.
