Going to be doing my first front hub service. Do you guys recommend new hub nuts, or just reuse the old ones?

When I brought this up a few months ago, most people said they reuse the nuts. I replaced the ones that came with the car from the factory when I first rebuilt my hubs, have been reusing my old nuts with no problems, and keep spares handy.

If you don't like the 1st answer, how about....

Just make sure you use your own nuts. And no one elses.

No. I did not expect better. I guess once the question was answered, its potty talk time!
