The front and rear differentials both use 75W-90W gear oil. The rear should be changed to 75W-140W if you are towing or otherwise putting the drivetrain under extra stress. This comes straight from the owner's manual.

What would cause fluid that is not brake fluid to leak onto tire from hub of rear axle on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?

If the fluid leaking into the rear tire is not brake fluid then it comes from the differential. It means you have a leaking seal. It means you are losing differential fluid. When the fluid is gone or gets low, you will lose your differential, the gears will strip, you will hear a horrible grinding sound, the rear wheels will lock up, and you will be stuck with the vehicle stopped wherever you are. Hopefully, it will not be in the middle of an Interstate highway with traffic screaming past at 80 miles an hour.
