Which prop for xstar with 8.1L?

Which of the three props listed below would be the best prop for an '08 XStar with L18 (450 hp) engine? The boat will have the Pro X (2500 lb)ballast system integrated. I will normally run just stock 1000 lb. ballast but will be able to fill up to a total of 3500 lbs. in ballast (and more when you include people and equipment). Please consider performance, fuel consuption and excessive engine wear as important factors. Thanks in advance and a happy, safe and prosperous new year to all you boating enthusiasts out there.

1) OJ 14.25 X 14.0

2) OJ 14.25 X 14.5

3) OJ 13.7 X17.5

That boat should have the 14.25 x 14 on it. Good prop. I would stick with that, but what do I know?
