949 lug nut advice needed

Just purchased a set of 949 Racing Lug Nuts. Been researching if the use of anti-seize is need. Like always many options.

If I use anti-seize. What type? What is the new torque values? How should the anti-seize be applied?

If I don't use anti-seize. Has anybody had problems with the lugs seizing to the studs?

One shouldn't use anti-seize on lugnuts. It alters torque values thus increases chances for insecure mount or chance to strip threads if overtorquing to compensate reduced friction with extra torque. Torque values are rated for dry threads only.
Just clean with wire brush/rug threads before torquing lugnuts back on, do first turns with hand to prevent cross-threading, and also don't use powertools for final torquing. Then even alu lugnuts should last reasonably. For piece of mind i'd still prefer steel lugnuts on tracked car whose wheels get changed 10+x more often then that of DD only car.
