Yup. I anti-seize the hub, but not the bolts. If swapping it at the end of winter, there won't be issues taking it off. Also, I don't use airtools, it's not really all that much work to do it by hand. I would like a lift though.

When I bought my 2006 a few years ago and went to put on snows, I got the bolt out, but the wheels chemically welded themselves to the hub. The dealer lifted it and used a bigass hammer to pop them free. I haven't had any issues since.
