I believe choice one to be the low risk choice especially if you live where pavement temperatures are high and you tow at highway speeds. That's the choice I've been using for 38 years and I have never had a trailer tire failure or flat. Plus it's the easier choice.
why are you adding 200 lbs per person on a boat trailer? Just curious
