Don't use wingnuts on the rear. They're very difficult to get tight, and if you do they're even harder to loosen. If you went this route, axle tensioners are required. Really, wingnuts are an old school technology that look appealing but can be a liability.

I've used them on the front of some fixed gears, never on the rear.
