newbie jeep owner question...

I just bought my first wrangler.... had a few cherokees in the past and loved them all of them.
My wrangler is a 2011 2 door sport soft top. It has steel 16" wheels.
I want to change the wheels to something bigger but thinking more stock daily driving.... what would I need to do to change to the 17 or 18" stock wheels or even aftermarket? How much hassle is it to have the speedo gear changed?

16" wheels are better. I suggest use the wheels you have, or get stock 16" alumium wheels.
Warning: I often edit my posts a few times to get them complete, or to correct errors.
