A Question

After talking to my local mechanic, I am left with the question...

why take off the nuts every year to add anti-seize?

wouldn't this just add to the number of times that the threads could get boogered?

why not just wait until you NEED to take them off and deal with cutting them then?

I guess at 30$ each they are not cheap, and preventative maintenance is a good thing in that sense. I however, have yet to take them off once and therefore am wondering what's the point if I have to take a risk just to prevent exactly what I am risking?
