Use a wire brush on the boss and remove any crap - then when you put the wheel back on you can smear some grease on the inside of the rim - this will help the next time you want to take them off
hope this helps
If you guys read the BMW service I or II (i forget which) detail it mentions removing wheels cleaning center hub and putting anti sieze compund on. DO NOT use grease as BLACKBMW suggests as unless it is specifically designed to withstand the high heat that the rotor generates it can melt get on your rotor and cause your brakes to not function.
I use high temp anti sieze compund which can be purchased in most auto store. By the way you should be using this stuff on all of your lug bolts as well.. takes almost no extra time and makes life so much easier down the road.
I've used a smear of grease for over 15 years on numerous cars on the wheel boss with no ill effects - maybe the brand I use is high heat
