My 96 factory service manual says.
“Caution: Never use oil or grease on studs or nuts. Tighten the wheel nuts with your fingers until they are snug. Then tighten the nuts to the torque shown in spec. Section (100-ft. lb.). Improperly tightened wheel nuts could eventually allow the wheel to come off while the vehicle is moving, possibly causing loss of control, personal injury and property damage.”
So do not do what I do and smear a very thin film of grease or anti-seize on wheel studs and lugnut shoulder where it touches the rim.
And no mater what, do not apply a thin film of anti-seize compound between the rotor and hub and rotor and wheel contact surface to prevent corrosion. Nod nod wink wink.
I have been doing this for many years and have never had a lugnut back off. The only cases of stud, lugnut, or rim failure, I know of, were caused by impact guns or rust.
