I could not find a Toyota Yeti. Do you mean the Toyota Yaris?

Do be careful in going for the absolute cheapest tires or they very well may outlive the car!

You need tires that allow you to stop on both dry and wet roads if you are hoping to do 10k km per year without an accident. Yes, you do not need the highest performance tires but a lesser know brand or model from one of the major companies for about CHF 55.- per tire should be possible assuming 14 inch tires.
100x this. Tyres are the only thing that are connecting you to the road. I don’t understand why anyone would ever skimp on them. There’s a reason cheap tyres are called ditch finders. Even if you don’t want to pay for Michelin, Continental etc at least look at the mid range brands like Vredestein or Falken.
