Haven't you ever had a tire changed at a T/A or Petro? If so you've probably used it. They use an oil based anti-seize. I can't remember a time they didn't use it. How do you get the lug nuts off without anti-seize??? Answer, you have to cut them off with a torch.

This thread quickly got away from Bearing Buddys and onto greasing lug nuts. Anyone have any comments on Bearing Buddys? I have never used them on a travel trailer and would not even consider it.

I suggest you reread the original post. It was about exercising lug nuts because of corrosion for those who use Bearing Buddys. Using anti-seize has everything to do with that. The original post wasn't about Bearing Buddys per say.

In my opinion the buddy bearings are a lazy mans way of greasing. I like to get the bearings in my hand and have a look and ensure they are good and greased. how often do you guys grease?

Bearing Buddys were only used by me on boat trailers and in salt water they only gave me a false sense of security. I would never consider using them on any trailer that was not going under water at a boat landing.

On my fifth wheel they are repacked every other season.

I like most of the rest of you use never seize on all lug nuts. Being a farmer, we have bought multiple pieces of machinery that had set around for years and rusted up the threads. After a time or two of wringing off or stripping treads, you become a true believer in never seize.

Not sure it should be applied to the mating surfaces (face of the nut) but it's not a bad idea on the threads. I would think that lubricating the face of the nut would cause an increase in the axial load on the stud. My opinion.
