Question Trailer Wheel Lugnuts

Does anyone put grease or antiseize on their lugnuts?

I am worried that they might loosen up on their own with something on the threads. But, I just had to change a flat and could barely get the lugnuts off. And I found water in one of them. Must be seeping past the threads.

Any thoughts?

As long as they are properly torqued oil, grease or antisieze will not cause any bolt or nut to loosen. Nothing to worry about.

I use anti-seize and torque them. Never a problem.

I have a set of steel chrome-plated wheels with chrome-plated lugnuts. Does 80ftlbs. of torque seem right to you guys?

I can't find any info in my trailer paperwork on proper torque.
