Not THOSE nuts!

I've just had to deal with wheel nits and wheels that were seized re changing to winter wheels (existing not mounted by me! ). This lead to a conversation with my local garage.......

Now for the past 15 years or so due to having this issue many years ago I've always lightly greased the mating surfaces re wheel\hub and wheel nuts to prevent this. Never had a problem and also do this with my race car. There are apparently conflicting views re this ............ :))))))). What are the thoughts out there?

I feel this may outdo the Brexit thread!
