What is needed to move up to 18" wheels

Have a 2012 JGC Laredo with 17" wheels and am considering moving up to 18"s. I am looking at purchasing a set of Jeep 18" wheels. Seems like plenty are available on Ebay. Wondering if I need to do anything special prior to installing, i.e. hubs, spacers, etc. Appreciate the advice

Re: What is needed to move up to 18" wheels

Nothing else to do but buy them and install them. Question is why? 18" tires are usually more expensive come replacement time.

Re: What is needed to move up to 18" wheels

As long as you stick with 18 inch OEM wheel and tire sizes, they bolt right on. Don't even need to recalibrate the speedo.
