Re: Should this look so corroded?
I give the hub a light spray of WD40 and wipe off the excess. I wouldn't be putting heavy rust preventative or anti-sieze in that area. What holds the wheel onto the hub is not the studs and lug nuts as such but the pre-stressing friction they produce between the wheel and the hub so it's not a good idea to put anything between them that might interfere with the friction coeficient. I figure the fine film of oil that WD40 leaves behind wouldn't hurt. I also torque the lug nuts.
