From a purely theoretical standpoint it could be argued either way I guess though the 18 might have a slight advantage. Key word, might, given all factors equal.
FWIW, I've been wheeling Jeeps for over 30 years and have yet to have a blow out of any kind on any vehicle and i currently commute almost 100 miles a day on mud tires that I use for rock crawling that have also been grooved and siped. I wouldn't let a theoretical blow out dictate my tire/wheel choice.
