Default Tin coated copper lugs vs copper lugs

When I originally ordered the lugs to make my own cables I didn't realize that I ordered "Tin coated copper lugs for marine applications" are those better than the regular copper coated lugs?
Wanting to get my cables made I ordered more of the regular copper lugs tonight and they should be here by Friday.
I'm sure that there is a difference in the resistance of them but haven't found much that will help me.
I am wanting to make the cables only once and want to get them right the first time, what do you think is better for the golf cart?

Thank you

Tin coated copper is preferred over "raw" copper. The tin coating will better prevent corrosion.

Tin coating will also eliminate the oxidation "tarnishing" that causes bright copper to turn dull brown.

Thank you, I'll use the tin coated ones then, and put the copper on the shelf.
