Default Yamaha FG180 - Which Grovers?

Hi Folks,
My first entry.
I am hoping to find out which are the best Grovers to use on my trusty old Yamaha FG180 to replace the old notchy originals.
There are obviously many models. I know i want the nickel color but which model is the best fit?
Would appreciate any help or experience with this.

Be aware you'll have to use the bushings that come with the tuners. The shafts are .250", the old tuners are 6mm (.236). You'll need to clamp something to the front of the headstock with a hole in it the size of the existing bushings head. This will support the face of the headstock and prevent you from blowing chunks out of it. Don't ask me how I know...
