Anti seize, Blue or green thread locker on 10mm allen brake hub bolts?

I'm installing new front brake rotors on the 1991 560SEL. I'm wondering if I should use anti seize or blue or green thread locker on the bolts prior to torquing them to 115nm. Any ideas?

I went ahead and placed blue thread locker on the 10mm allen head bolts. I can torque to 60 foot pounds but I need to get it to 84.82 (115nm) but I can't seem to get the torque wrench to turn hard enough.

I have the rotor/hub attached to the tire lying on the floor. I'm using an extension on the 10mm allen head drive. Perhaps I need to get my helper to stand on the tire so that I can really crank on the torque wrench?

I had the same problem .I worked on the disc from the floor .Realy wanted a ramp to get the torque to the 115 as you said. I left mine as tight as i could get it ,also with thread lock on the bolts. New cars are not as much torque as the old ones

My helper stood on the tire while I gradually torqued up the 10mm allen head bolts starting at 50 foot pounds, then 60, then 70, then 80, then finally 84.82 foot pounds. It was a lot easier starting out at 50 then gradually increasing the torque on each bolt. Also, it is necessary to have a helper stand on the tire while torquing down the bolts.
