I use Permatex "anti-seize" on all my lugs with aluminum wheels. It prevents seizing and galling on dissimilar metals. My 2000/30 excella calls for 80 ft lbs.

Digression: I agree a tread depth gauge is a necessity. It helps identify uneven tire wear quickly (if you use it) and tells you which tires to rotate where. I use mine on all my vehicles fairly frequently. Although car and truck manufacturers tell you to rotate in a standard pattern, I find that doesn't always make sense and sometimes just switching 2 tires instead of 4 or 5 is all that's needed. Back to lug wrenches.

Speaking of the original question - when I bought my first AS it came with a lug wrench that the PO had bought. So I never thought about it again.

That is, until I tried to use it on the side of the road; the "sockets" were too fat to fit around the lug nut and between the center chrome hub cover. I always carry a pretty full wrench and socket set, so I had a good plan B, but that could have been a real problem. So yes - you must be careful about which speed wrench (lug wrench, cross wrench or even socket). Test them before you need them.
