If you mean as opposed to nickel anti-seize, then none that I know of specifically.

Generally nickel anti-seize is the way to go due to some superior qualities like temperature range.

However, copper anti-seize is good enough in almost all scenarios and is usually a bit cheaper.

In general, anti-seize is good for pretty much any application where there will be relatively static metal-on-metal contact, such as a nut and bolt, especially when one or both of those metals are corrosive. It prevents them from rust-welding together and also acts as a lubricant.

Any hub-centric cars should be using this. If you don't have fun changing your tires come spring.

Not much, silver grade has no silver in it, and is for fine thread applications I think. Nickel grade is a bit more expensive and is better than either silver or copper in certain applications. For the average person I’d just buy the nickel and probably use the one bottle for your whole life. However a bottle of copper or silver are a heap better than nothing and also probably fine for whatever an average person would use them for. I think I have a bottle of copper and nickel.

silver < copper < nickel

silver = aluminum with some copper and graphite, up to 1600 F
copper, up to 1800 F
nickel, up to 2400 F

I use silver and copper interchangeably, depending upon what I have on hand. I use these on parking brake components and wheel hubs mostly.
I don't bother with spark plugs as I have never had any issues there. I also do not bother on exhaust components as everything rusts solid by the time replacement is needed.
However, if I had a performance exhaust on a sports car that I needed to regularly remove, I would use nickel on that due to the higher heat rating.

I use this stuff in the steering knuckle cavity when I replace speed sensors and wheel bearings/hubs. Good find. Upvoted.

I've never had the need to, across many vehicles and oil changes.
Should be fine if you just put a bit on the plug threads and avoid getting it near the front that touches the oil. I still wouldn't bother.

Yeah in my experience oil drain plugs are usually pretty well oiled and don't seem to rust much. I live on the BC coast though so maybe things are different elsewhere. Also without looking into the abrasive properties of anti-seize I would say to keep it away from your oil. If it was abrasive it could damage bearing/piston seals.

A drain plug shouldn't seize as it's already lubricated and removed regularly.

It's redundant like saying "assless chaps".

Definitely will for most casual home users. I've been using the same bottle for winter/summer tire changes since owning my first car in high school. I'm now in my 30's and own a home and that bottle is still only 50%.

Edit: Clarification thanks to the RFDer who quoted me - this is for the metal contact on the tire rim to the hub and not for lug nuts obviously!
