I came across this thing called Corrosion Stop made by Fabulous Blaster company. I am thinking it’s similar to Boeshield T-9 Waterproof Lubricant. Other companies make similar stuff also. It sprays bubbly petroleum stuff, and it dries leaving a thin film of what looks like wax.
According to the label, its uses includes lug nuts. I have been having problem with rusting lug nuts. So much so that I broke one off last spring when I was changing over to summer tires from winter tires. I wrote to Blaster company asking whether I should adjust tightening torque when I spray their corrosion stop stuff. Their answer is that I need not adjust tightening torque.
Does that make sense? Boeshield calls its product waterproof LUBRICANT, which should mean I should be lowering the tightening torque, if I use that stuff on lug nuts. I just want some opinion from other people.
