17" to 18" question

I have the stock 17" wheels (laredo) and want to upgrade to 18" (either OEM or aftermarket". My question is will I have any additional cost in doing this? Will I have to change (brakes? TPMS?) I consider myself a "noob" when it comes to car modificcations and hope someone can help.

The cost will only be in the new wheels and tyres. You don't need to make any further modifications to the vehicle.

The OEM size for 18" tyres is 265/60/18R a total diametre of 775mm or 30.5 inches. Not sure if the 17" wheels and tyres total diameter is the same?

Get the new 10 spoke mopar wheels....

Re: 17" to 18" question

I've seen those and I do want them..I'm hoping someone will buy them (hopefully they own an brilliant black JGC) so I can see what they'll look like. Thanks for your help. I've been seeing all kinds of stuff regarding "adding spacers" and "wheel offset", etc. My mind has become mush
