Anti-seize is your friend.

Stainless is ok if you roll the threads and don't cut them.

In my experience on a regular bolt/nut application I always find 2 to 3 out of a hundred stainless bolts will strip out.


How fast are you going to require aluminum lugs?

     It had more to do with the intended applications; that being of generally light weight little European sports cars, most often with not so powerful little four cylinder engines, this where just a little difference just 'might' be noticeable.      ::)
