PTH component suppliers, nominally, expect their components to see wave solder preheat temperatures (120C), rather than reflow temperatures (210C).

Best thing to do is to get a handful of each try in your BOM, toast those puppies at reflow temperatures, and then evaluatate their post-toast performance.

Good luck
