1 inch oversize wheels

Brakes would be good, Springs/Sways depend on what you want from the car and what you want to spend.

You actually have 16" wheels, so you're going up 2" to 18".

18" will be fine, you'll most likely be slighty slower to start and stop. You wouldn't need to upgrade anything yet, but if you went to 20 i'd do bigger brakes etc.
