I was in exactly the same situation in December. I decided on a '15 Overland with the stock/OEM 20". Just had the most snow in NE in a while and had no complaints with them on road in the snow and "wintery mix".
Consider that the Overland stock comes with everything in the ORAII pkg except 18" wheels and skid plates. If you add skid plates you have everything except the 18" wheels. If down the road/trail you feel you want 18" wheels, just buy a set and swap them in/out as needed with the 20" wheels.
I had dealer add the skids plates for about $1,000 parts and labor.
The 20" wheels and QL give me the best ride comfort I've ever had, and I have no complaints with how it handled this winter.
