Axle Nuts

I need to get my car back on the road this weekend after a clutch and fork change. I did not order new axle nuts.

Any thoughts on re-using the old ones while I wait for the new ones to come in.....

I have done that on my personal car. As long as you can torque them properly & then recheck torque after driving 1st & 2nd time. I leave the center caps off until I'm confident they won't loosen.
