    Shimano compatable cogs placemnet on various hubs

    Do ALL shimano 8/9/10 speed hubs effectively place each cog in the same plane as any other shimano 8/9/10 speed hub?

    I own a pair opf cane creek 130mm rear with shimano 9 speed hub. Love the wheels.

    BUT thinking of buling up a pair of Mavic open pro or other rims with 105 or other hubset for rain days and training days.

    Will the cogs land in the exact same place as the cane creek wheelset so I doin't have to twist the deraileur adjustment barrel each time i wheel-swap???

    you will have to adjust the RD when you swap wheels.

    Not always and in fact that should be the exception to the rule. Ever get a wheel change in a race? No time to fiddle with the RD barrel adjuster. Just slam it in and go!

    That's with same-brand/model replacement wheels. The OP wants to go from Cane Creek to Shimano, maybe not a slammable move.

    My favorite exercise: try it and see.

    ...is "no".
    It is my belief that every person in this world has something to teach, and everything to learn.

    No, you will be lucky if things fit exactly. Of course, if you are preparing a set of wheels that go together, you can position the cones, spacers, etc. so that the cogs are exactly in the same plane. But except for racing, I don't think it's worth the trouble. Better spend 1-2 minutes to check your deraileur adjustments.

    In practice, the few times I swapped a wheel, I noticed that my limit screws were about correct, but that indexing was definitely not.
