Tom, anytime you change the rear axel the dish of the wheel can be altered and should be checked. To determine the correct dish you will need either a wheel dishing guage or a properly adjusted wheel truing jig. Adjusting the dish is a matter of tightening the nipples on one side and loosening on the other side. Depending on how much the dish needs to be altered will determine if the wheel needs to be relaced with new spokes.
