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.

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