Try it you like it! Anyone who hasn't needs to reconsider. Once you do you will never go back.

I hear you, however, if I were you I would find someone (a manufacturer) who makes wheels and lug nuts that states this as a proper method of service. We live in a world where not following the instructions can cost you everything. I don't agree with this worlds ways but they exist all the same.

Seems some members in this tread getting to be a little excited about the lubricating of lugs. Why mfg's don't mentioning lubricant on the lugs is because they all deliver with the dry method and I am sure also as a safety concern (they cover themselves). Practical in the field many will use a lubricant, special if you live in an area where they use lots of salt during the winter season. The torque specs are for the dry method, but if you lubricate use about 10 to 15 lbs less on every 100 lbs of torque (there is probably an engineering spec. on that). Everyone has an opinion about this subject. Just use the info and method you agree with. I am sure people way in the south where they don't use salt on the roads during the winter season, would never have a lug seized. I use anti-seize lubricant for 55 years and never have a lug nut come loose. Over torque will do more damage to the lug and lug nut than using the anti-seize. There is a saying: "Experience is an asset". Good luck with the option of your choice and travel safe!

Hey wwsmith, never had to cut a lug off we change our own tires every 6 months. I personally don't like that crap flinging all over my polished wheels. I also keep my stuff immaculately clean.
