I've been running anti sieze on my Audi wheel bolts for 5 years without any
issues what so ever.
I agree that "wet" torque" puts more stress on the bolt than "dry" torque
but I not had any problems. It feels like hte bolts are about to strip when
on 3rd 20v, wheels off/on each car at least 500 times....
