Default what size trailer tire

I need to replace my trailer tires. They are 15" rim, I have decided on carlisle load range D tires, they come in a 205 & 225. Any pros or cons to either size? I was thinking the 205's cause they are a few bucks cheaper and they are a bit narrower/ shorter. But that means less rubber to disapate heat when driving.

also means they will spin faster since they are slightly shorter.

I don't have anything else useful to add.

I looked at this before and I couldn't find anyone that stocks the smaller size in LR D but everyone caries the 225's. I got the 225's in case I ever needed a spare on the road.
