Besides the wheels, you will need to change the tires so you will be running close to the same circumference. http://kgm.tiwing.com/calcs/tiresizecalc.htm

Sure if you want to mess up the entire vehicle...

I know this is an old thread but here it is. No it will not mess up your vehicle that is wrong info, yes you can change rim size but you SHOULD not HAVE to change tire size smaller rim bigger tire/bigger rim smaller tire, reason for this is because your transmission is calibrated to a certain tire circumference if you do not do the above your speedometer will not read correctly
