    Providing hou carry out a wipe each time there should be no problem.
    The main question for me is where are
    you storing these nandroids as they are memory intensive?

    Do you mean factory reset, wipe cache & wipe dalvik cache only..??

    (My sgs i9000 is 16gb, hence I have plenty room on internal sd card)

    Regarding wipe, yes, but not entirely necessary unless you are moving from ICS to Gingerbread and back.
