I'm a fan of RT43's. I think they give good performance in snow when new; when half-worn, not so much (no surprise there). Wet traction I think falls off pretty quickly once 4/32's is hit, but for the price I've been ok with that. For you, if you are low miles per year, that should not be a problem for quite some time.
Edit: When I did change from Conti to RT43 on my Jetta I noticed a huge change in handling. On my Camry's, not so much.
