Yes, I cleaned all mating surfaces with starting fluid and a wire brush (the hub behind the rotor and also the inside of the wheel). All of that came very clean. Furthermore, I soaked the lug nuts in 10w-30 over night. Next morning, reassembeled everything and torqued the wheel to 25 ft lbs, then 50, then 75, then 100 in the criss-cross pattern.
If that doesn't do it, I don't know what will!
