Pacific Northwest - 130mm rear wheel in 135mm spacing question

Ok, I have read various and conflicting opinions, why not get a few more.
I ride a steel cross bike with 135mm rear spacing. If I were to buy a rear wheel that is 130, do I need any adjustments.
Thanks for any input you have.

shimano hubs are a piece of cake to exchange the axles, even if it seems best, it its no big deal..
freehub makes it like a wide front wheel, cones on the ends locknuts and anti spin washer, thats it.
5mm of spacer on the left means you can retension the side to side spoke balance
to be a little more equalized .. which is good ..
Make sure you don't cold set the rear triangle if the steel frame was heat treated. Go with what fietsbob suggested.
