I've been off-tossed more times than I can count with 18s. I'd go 17 for this reason alone.

Should be the same ground cleanance. They are both 32” tires. The 17s are 225/75s, and the 18s are 255/70s. Ground cleanance will be the same. The only hiccup may be the running boards that are standard on the OBX

The running boards may be lower than the rockers resulting in less ground clearance. Can’t tell by the pictures

The 18s will give a “better ride” on the highway, the 17s will be better for off roading.
Maybe turn-in feeling, the 18s will be worse for comfort.
