Re: painting lug nuts
According to my reading (Porsche owners manual), no lubrication should be used, and as always clean wheel bolts before fitting. It is my understanding that lubrication will alter the torque values and of course Porsche does not recommend nor endorse anything but genuine Porsche wheel bolts.
