Default Which step for avoiding detonation on 87?

I just purchased a 1.4L turbocharged vehicle that is tuned at the factory for 87 octane, but during the summer, will pull timing even on 93 due to knock. I am not looking for “more power”, but simply looking to not have timing pulled. I understand that 87 and performance don't mix, but the wife may be driving the car, so I want 87 as the baseline if she fills up.

I am considering the following five choices.

I own the necessary parts for the water/meth kit, as well as enough meth to keep the kit fed for 2 years.
