    If they are dead nuts parallel to the rim they will.  They have to be toed 
in slightly to avoid that.  If they are toed out you get a terrible vibration 
that will knock your teeth loose.

    In addition, if you are using any of those water-shedding rims like Rigida, 
Samir, DEA, Schornoff, and an Italian brand I can't think of, they're going to 
"sing" no matter what sort of brake you use.  I love the sound of those, and 
you have to be certain that both wheels are the same brand or you'll get two 
tones plus a beat note, which is terribly annoying.
