I don't want my nuts corroding, or my studs snapping.

I use anti - seize, but this will start another fight.

Ive asked around at work to other techs , and the vast majority use it. Yes you need to change torque specs slightly for wet. Thing is everybody comes and borrows my bottle of anti-sieze anytime they have problematic bolts, nuts, or studs. -The guys that use it dont seem to have problems. Twist a few siezed lug/studs and you will want something besides dry for sure!

I have used a very little bit of Silver Goop on the nuts, but it is super expensive, $95 for a 1 oz tube. Especially good and it will not come off in water. A single dab on a q-tip is enough for 10 lug nuts. Used it on the racecar trailer with no problems. Cannot caution enough to not get lube of any kind on the tapered portion of the lug nut.

I had to change a flat and wanted to make sure I had the wheel on right. 100 foot pounds rating on my TT... Also I was told to back the adjustment back to 0 foot pounds after every use, otherwise the spring will deform and become inaccurate. I wish sometimes was a book you were handed at 18 and told " read this before attempting life" but then where's the excitement in that! Lol

Found out about that tidbit just this year. (Always had a beam type before).

Got you by 10 yrs in the search and haven't found it either. I did realize when I was about 22/23 that my mom & dad must of been going to school while I was going from 16 to 22/23, because they sure got a lot smarter. BTW, at 18 I would not have read the book if someone presented it. Now, at 22/23, I might of at least glanced at it.

Well, as retired Navy I tried to bring the "Blue Jackets Manual" into the family as the instruction book. My DW gave me that certain look that all married men are familiar with...needless to say...

Never heard that one before. Although to be fair the only springs I worry much about are in gun magazines, where it's the repeat expansion/contraction over time that wears them out, not from sitting in one particular position.

Btw, I just came back from my garage, had to reset my torque wrench back to zero.
