Actually Nidoking can run another set similar to its standard special set;

Nidoking @ Choice Scarf
Modest (+SpA; -Atk) / Timid (+Spe; -Atk)
Sheer Force
4 Hp / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
~ Earth Power
~ Sludge Wave / Fire Blast
~ Ice Beam
~ Thunderbolt

Nidoking has pretty basic speed, so a Choice Scarf is a nice item for it considering Sheer Force + its booster powered moves + amazing coverage allow it to hurt a lot of things. Sludge Wave is a nice STAB that gets boosted by Sheer Force but doesn't get coverage on much.

I'm pretty sure there's a Hone Claws set that utilizes Hone Claws and Rock Slide, too.
