Hub nuts are called many different names such as stake nuts, flanged nuts, one shot nuts to name a few.
Many parts are easily checked with versional inspections. If your brake drums are removed the hub nuts must replaced. Unless the stub is fitted with a castellated nut and split pin, in that case only the split pins must be replaced.
One shot flanged hub nuts are done up to very high torque setting which is one of the reasons they must be replaced
