Willy, in a past life I worked in dealerships, independent shops, and maintained a fleet of vehicles for an oil co. I always used anti-seize on the studs, from passenger vehicles on up to the big stuff, and never had a wheeloff. The seatbelt analogy is pretty lame. I suspect those studies and opinions have more to do with lawyers and lawsuits than anything else. I suppose in the end your opinion or mine is not going to make much difference. I will probably continue to use it with confidence on my own vehicles, and others won't. If properly installed, it is not likely that those in either camp will lose any wheels.
