bigger wheels are generally heavier, so they lower your acceleration, your mpg, increase angular momentum with turning.

If you have some money burning a hole in your pocket, then sure, wheels can help it look 'better'. If you want to improve the performance get ready to spend some serious money.

I generally get a set of wheels when i get snow tires. You could go that route.
