Maybe not the right person to answer (Canon camp)...
It all depends on what you are aiming at :
Normally VR is more useful at the long range, since the luminosity is smaller, with the VR you will win one stop.
But then having VR on the wide lens allows you to take more pictures without a flash indoors.
What about the aperture of the lenses are they the same ?
