Default Wheat crush Q

In a couple days, I'm gonna give EdWort's Hefeweizen a go. I have not brewed with wheat malt yet and was wondering about the crush. Should I adjust my Malt mill for a finer crush for the wheat? Also, do I add the rice hulls directly into the mash, or do I crush them as well?

I like to use the standard gap pn my barley crusher for the wheat, but crush it twice.

The rice hulls go straight in. I like to rinse/pre-soak them first though.

Anyone else have any comments on how they crush their wheat malt?
