    I hope they don't show up that way.
    Ha, I did see that. That would surely suck!

    Funny, I remember there was a lot of back and forth regarding the use of anti-sieze on the bolts in that thread. Mine included a sheet of paper in with each wheel in very large fonts saying you MUST use anti-sieze on the bolt threads.
    Larry from Trailready told me they always use antisieze when installing the ring bolts...

    I would have thought that it would be necessary being that you're dealing with dissimilar metals, but on Eddies install write-up he mentioned NOT using anti-sieze and there was an ensuing discussion. His wheels must not have come with those instruction sheets specifically saying you need to.

    Correct. We always use antisieze. There’s this concern that lubricant of any kind fucks with the torque but the same can be said for not using it, especially when there’s galling.

    What lugnuts do you use on these axles Bubba? Other than the Gorilla brand, I don't see any other options out there in the 9/16-18 x 3" size.

    If the threaded inserts are stainless steel then I’d think anti seize would be warranted. Not because of corrosion but because of galling, as Bubba notes.

    Trailready's don't have inserts like the ATX/KMC wheels do. The bolts thread directly into the wheel.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
