Rear line size question?

Im redoing my lines and my Wilwood pro-valve has 3/16 size output for the rear. I was going to run a new 1/4 line to the rear. Should I use an adapter or run 3/16 line? I would think I need the bigger line for the volume of fluid to the rear?

If there are disc brakes in the rear run the 3/16" line. If drums, use the larger line.
