The big difference is, you need different length spokes!

Actually, the classic answer was, high-flange hubs made stiffer wheels because spokes were shorter. low-flange hubs were more resilient and rode better.

You need some genuine wheel-building help. I've read a good book on the subject but burned it on an altar and took my mangled wheels to the shop
