late answer but your a rare type that is very aware of feedback. Yes they handle different and steering and lateral loads can be detected. I can feel a radial wheel on the velodrome where we use some high loading and diving turns. I didn't like the radial wheels or heavier 3 and 5 spoke cArbon wheels because the flex points change. It's not a problem But your exactly correct. Even the same wheel built loose vs higher sooke tension
