Default Winter weather preparation/ rock salt/ winter tyres

I'm living quite high up at the moment so certainly at more risk of being affected by snow this year. Used snow socks on my car in previous years when needed which work well but only can use them when there's actual snow. Does anyone actually use winter tyres? What time of year do you get them on?

Also a heads up on 25kg bags of rock salt available at Wickes for 1.49 each

Currently running Hankook Optimos 4S. They're all-season tyres, so excellent in rain/snow, but not shit during the summer.

Little tip from a former mountain man:

Mix 12 litres of 3:5 ratio diluted PVA, paint that on the tyres and drive through 12 feet of your rock salt (2" deep).

Hey presto, studded tyres that dissolve by the time you hit tarmac.

Love a bit of sliding around in the snow. Just gone front wheel drive and auto though so less fun this year. Stick with the slicks.

Good thread, will bump in a couple of months when it's closer to being somewhat near to f***ing winter.
