Depends on the wheelset and the build. I have two pairs of Offroad wheels and to change between the different sets does not cause a problem.. Providing you have the same hubs and they are identical then there will not be a problem. I presume that even with two different hubs you could set them up with the disc in the same place.
Just realised that I am talking about the other problem in that two different sets of wheels may have the disc in a different plane- but this can be adjusted to conform. Changing wheels over will not cause a problem to the pads as long as the discs are the same material and thickness. Differnt grades of steel could give you a different braking effect but should not bother the pads at all.
