I often put three or four tiny scrapes of candle wax on the threads of aluminum filters or adapters before first use; the end of a birthday cake candle every inch or so around the circumference. That provides a slight lubrication that works into the thread but otherwise doesn't migrate much and seems to smooth out their operation.

I would advise not getting too gorilla-like in tightening such rings, just enough they don't wiggle or wobble.
