I'm having this dilemma now where the selection of 37x13.50R18 tires are very little, and I should have bigger tire outside diameter to go with the lift height.
I do prefer more sidewall as well. Yes the Open Country MTs come in that size, but not all that much else. Mud Grapplers and Trail Grapplers do as well, but only 12.5" wide.
There are more options for 20" wheels and they retain a Load Range E rating at those sizes whereas 37" tires on 18" wheels are all Load Range D. (I just don't want to be buying wheels again unless I get a crazy good deal, and this would mainly be a visual appearance upgrade and I wouldn't gain much more vehicle capability other than improved axle ground clearance.) - Other than the lack of product selection I would definitely go for 37s on 18s and I am still looking. Let us know what you decide.

¹VIN details are accurate for the linked truck only, YMMV.
