My experience is that if a bolt wants to seize, anti-seize doesn’t help much but most things these days are made well enough not to worry. If you think it’s going to lock up just put it in real slow so it doesn’t build up heat. I use anti-seize on engine studs to cut down on corrosion. Most aren’t in karting long enough to worry about that lol.

Something that makes wheel nuts and hub pinch bolts easier for me is a torque wrench.
