I've got a set of newer 2005+ 16" Tacoma wheels on my '99 Tacoma. When I take them off to swap on the winter wheels I've noticed the wheels like to sieze themselves to the hubs. I've improved the situation by lubing the hub faces with copper anti-sieze. I've also had a few lug nuts partially strip upon removal. Has anyone had similar problems, and found a solution?
A good cleaning with a wire wheel attachment on a drill and NOT copper antisieze but the silver stuff.
get everything super clean.
check to make sure the hub hole on the wheel has not become out of round, or has been squished.
if so, lightly grind out the weird spots.
lots of anti-sieze (i use silver).
I'd recommend just a thin coat, if you get too thick you run some risks of the wheel loosening up on you, be especially careful about getting it down in blind hole lug nuts so you don't hydro lock the fastener. Re-torquing after about 50 miles would probably be smart with anti-seize use.
