Default tires for the M416 trailer

What do you think I should get for the M416 trailer? I'm looking at:

standard military NDT tires, size 7.00x15, $83 each + tubes



or

Swamper TSL, size 29x8.5x15, $88 each




Here's what the trailer looks like:

is the bolt pattern on the wheels for the trailer the same as the Jeep? I would match those together so in case you ever need spares you could always use the ones on the trailer.

Yes, the trailer and Willys have the exact same wheels. The tires on the Willys still have plenty of tread (Copper Discover mud terrains), but the next set will be the military NDT tires I posted above. However, the trailer will be used for camping, and hauling other stuff too. The NDTs are 29.5" in overall diameter, so It would be okay to use one as a spare on the Willys if I had too.
