Also make sure to use the proper weight of oil when you fill them back up
I always use anti-seize on my lug nuts, apply only to the threaded portion of stud and make sure none is on the hub face or wheel and torque to oem specs, I have many years of use on several different vehicles and trailers and have never had one problem. Some folks are against the use of an anti-seize saying it causes nuts to loosen over time, well I have never experienced that including numerous customer vehicles I've applied to over the years. Permatex 765-1674 it even says for use on lug nuts.
