Jam nuts will keep the main nut from turning, but that is not the cause of
the loss of clamping torque!  Also an impractical waste of time at the
track, how would you get a second wrench on the main nut down in a typical
wheel's bolt well?

The studs and nuts or bolts are way understressed in this application, so no
need to replace at any interval, IMO.
