I run a set of Yokohama winters that are totally fine - they were on sale when I first bought them and in the years since have been great.

In the end they'll mostly all be okay especially since it doesn't seem like you have any serious usage scenarios.

General Altimax Artic + Steelies FTW. Been running these for years and haven't had any issues.
