Those are MUSTS, here are some optionals
1. re-calibrate the speedo, if automatic, re-calibration also resets the shift points for you. You can achieve this through a procal module (cheapest) or something like a superchips device. (mucho $$)
2. Regear to offset the larger diameter of wheels/tires. When you go with a larger diameter wheel/tire combo, you lose low end torque and top end speed due to the engine having to work harder to turn the larger wheels. this can be offset by regearing. I would drive it with the larger tires and THEN decide whether you can live with the torque decrease. If you aren't having to drive up mountains or big hills or tow anything, you might not mind it.
Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.
