    I never have, and I have never heard of anyone else wiping/data/cache before restoring a back-up, I don't think it can hurt though

    I understand the reluctance to not want to do a wipe. I'd try it without the wipe.

    I have never wiped before restoring a back-up and that method has never caused a problem for me

    If you are restoring to a backup (nandroid), that will involve overwriting /system, /data, and /cache with the copy in the backup. It's irrelevant whether you erase /data and /cache before restoring, because they are going to be overwritten anyway.

    Installing a ROM is different than restoring to a backup because installing only writes to /system (typically)
