Hello,

I've performed the 15,000 miles service on my '09 RRS. One of the steps is to "Lubricate the Wheel Centers". I believe this means applying anti-seize compound between the inside of the wheel and the hub, but am not sure. in addition, if I'm right I wonder how necessary this is for a vehicle that is never taken off road or through any mud or deep puddles. Does anyone have a view on this?

Thanks,

Mike

My view is that applying some compound on the hub / wheel mating surface (and maybe a little over the lug nut studs) is cheap insurance against seizure, however unlikely that possibility might be. If the wheel seizes on the hub, it always does it at night on a dark desert road in the middle of nowhere when your cell phone is out of range and you realize you have a flat. :lol: You already have the wheels off anyway - the 15K service asks you to rotate them - might as well apply some of the gooey stuff, it can't hurt.
