15 to 17 or 18 in rims

Do I need to upgrade brakes if I replace 15 in rims with 17 or 18 inch rims?

If your going with 33's or bigger tires I'd say yes itd be a good idea.

If its a TJ or YJ don't go to 17's unless your gonna run 35's or bigger. You will lose to much sidewall. Never run a 18 or bigger. The cost of tires goes up drastically for that size or bigger rim.
