I hope you meant "replace the axle nut with a new one..."! When I read it first, I thought "only if you don't want your wheel to fall off"

I don't know how tongue-in-cheek that is, but just in case:

Actually, that wouldn't happen. The nut maintains a tight fit between axle shaft and hub, but does not retain the hub, so even without the nut the wheel is secure.
