None, you should get a locking nut instead.

If you have a locking nut, the tuners will make no difference to tuning stability. And a string winder(about $2-3 for a basic type) makes string changing incredibly fast.

This.

With a high quality locking nut you wouldn't notice any undue instability even if you cut the strings and removed the tuners entirely.

If you still want locking tuners for the simple fact of having them, look into the PW auto trims. I say this b/c the auto trim feature is nice, and if you want to have some functionality from buying new tuning machines, this is about the only feature that would do anything (as the nut will take care of the locking).
