English threaded cog on Miche Hub

I thought I knew the answer to this but I want to check here to make 100% sure. Did some searching but couldn't find a definitive answer.

I just purchased a cog and didn't realize it's English threaded. Will this cog screw onto my Miche hubs or will it destroy the threads? I remember reading about how you can cross-thread as long as you don't switch back and forth.

Pretty sure you will be fine. It is the lockring threading that you need to worry about.

Thanks guys. So nothing to worry about then?

If the threading of the cog doesn't matter, then why are there English treaded cogs and Italian threaded cogs?

The difference is so small that it doesn't really matter in real world use.
