I use a silver high temp. antisieze on the spark plug threads and dielectric grease on all of my electrical connections. You can use the same high temp. antisieze on the wheel studs to keep them from binding.

I use anti-sieze on aluminum heads, but not cast iron. I do use dielectric grease on terminal ends. I also like to spray silicone on the wires and cap.

I learned a few years ago that my busted knuckles removing stubborn spark plugs was because I simply had a habbit of overtightening the spark plugs in the first place. When I take the time to actually torque them to specs they are no problem getting out, so to answer no I don't use anti-sieze on them.

Also started using the dielectric grease on the boots and it makes removing the boots nice and easy too.

I ALWAYS USE ANTI SIEZE ON THE PLUGS AND DIALECTIC GREASE ON THE BOOTS....
ESPECIALLY IF RUNNING ALUMINUM HEADS....
Makes things soooo much easier....
