Totally ignoring all the good, sensible advice I've received over the years, I use anti-sieze compound on my car's lug nuts. The torque value I've chosen is 40 to 42 ft-lb, which may be a bit high. However, I've also made sure the bore in each lug nut has the proper depth, diameter, and thread form -- which none of them did when I bought the car back in 2000.

So far, none of my wheels or lug nuts have come loose or fallen off. YMMV.
