Whichever will be cost effective.

Canadian Tire is clearing out a bunch of winter tires this weekend. Marked down considerably.

they have the General's in my size for $99 each.. dated 2315 though....doesn't include mounting or balancing.

That would be the first week of June in 2015. Plus you have to pay $3.30 per tire and 13% HST on top, and then find someone to mount, valve and balance them. Going newer with a place like Simply may not be too far removed cost-wise.
