Threadlocker or Antiseize?

Putting wheel spacers in, should I was going to use lots of thread locker but
a DIY video on the autochannel said use anti-seize....

he was also putting the spacers on a mustang. Not 2 inch spacers on a truck with wider than stock tires...

I think I wil go with the thread lock and hope for the best getting them off someday... I think there is alot more of a chance of them falling off on a truck

what do you guys think? Anti-seize and proper tourque or lots of threadlock

I only use threadlocker (you don't need a lot) when vibration could cause my nuts/bolts to come loose and anti-sieze on the crucial stuff... i.e., threadlocker on the nuts that hold my wheels on my quad, anti-sieze on the swingarm bolt, but threadlocker on the nut at the end. Make sense?

Just start yelling "Devil Man".... that's what they call the snap-on guy around here, because he takes your first born.
