We see this a lot, but don't do it. Spin the hub and listen for noise before torquing the nut to 17-25 ft/lbs. Back off, spin the hub, then torque again to 17-25 ft/lbs. Then, back the nut off to the nearest cotter pin hole position. Rotation should be smooth without binding and noise. If there's binding or noise, remove the hub and inspect.
