Correct placement of anti-seize on spacer?

Received my spacers and plan to install later today. Where is it appropriate to apply the anti-seize? I have read only the center of the hub (inside lip) area and not on the backside of the spacer that lies against the hub (b/c could cause vibration)?

Thanks!

Why? there's no point your spacers wont stick and if they do good spacers have a slot to slide a flat bladed screw driver in and pull them off. I just tap mine with a rubber dead blow hammer if it wont come off when I run them.. don't put that **** all over your brake and hub dude you don't need it.

I spread anti-seize on the inner diameter of the spacer that fits to the wheel hub. That's it. This will allow it to rotate as necessary in order to align the wheel and studs up correctly to the wheel hub. Plus, many spacers have indentations for a flat-head screwdriver so you can "pry" them off later, if need by. I've had this for about two years now and no issue.

i put a small, small, small about on the part that will come in contact with the hub. makes them easier to adjust and line up.
