I have wondered about this for some time. Since the splines eventually
wear out, one can assume that there is some movement between wheel and
hub. Thus, some kind of grease that minimises the wear effects of this
movement would surely be ideal?

Personally, I have an old can of Castrol Heavy grease that I use. This
is a very thick grease that is resistant to being washed out by water.
Not that my wheels experience much water here in the SF Bay area.
