You want old school steel internal cam quick release levers and steel nuts to permit sufficient tightness to prevent the wheel from slipping in the dropout under load. The modern external cam levers are designed for vertical dorpouts which do not require the QR to be very tight, and the aluminum nuts can strip out (it's happened to me) if the lever is overtightened.
