You will probably wish you had gotten 17s. More tire options and generally cheaper.

I agree with JKommuter, 17” wheels is what I would recommend over 18s if you want to step up from 16”.

But as to your questions. With the sizes you list you would be going up approximately 3” in diameter. This will make your speedometer read a bit low (you will be going just a bit faster than it says), unless you correct the programming. You may notice a slight drop in perceived power/acceleration, and you may get slightly worse fuel mileage.
