You might as well change the 4 mains and keep the spare as it is. Primacy / Yoko are good tyres but do take a look at Apollo as well.. 3k per tyre is a lot of money to save.
True 41K is way too early to change, moreover keeping in mind the condition they are in there is absolutely no need to change. BUT Sam incident has left some marks, maybe a new set of tires is not that expensive . Of course taking care of tires is the key.

after a really long and confusing search and discussions and to and fro movement between 205/215/225 and michelin/ yoko/ bridgestone/apollo and for once even JK, decided to go to the tyre shop and take a call there....

Posting a pic of my odo on the day of tyre change..
