What do you guys think about this?
Hydraulic calipers are self adjusting. May be a pain with cable operated.
I've heard of the problem but haven't experienced it.
Potentially you could have shifting problems with changing the rear wheel too.

I did get tired of adjusting the calipers when I changed rims of different widths.
