Just acquired a 66 plate F56 Cooper S.

 

it has black wheels, which I’m not a great fan of, but they are 17”.......can it go up to 18” without the need to then lower the car?

 

 

 

 

thanks

The F56 cup wheels (standard jcw wheels) are 18’s so no issue. 
The only issue I can see you having is you would probably need to correct the speedo 

 

it would look better lower for sure but you don’t ‘need’ to lower it.

Hey @Borvad, welcome to FOM and thanks your first post. As what Kettlepot says really, you dont have to lower it but would "look" better if you did, even if you did it slightly on coil overs to make it exactly how you want it :)

 

Heres an idea of the gap to wheel ratio on an 18" on an F56 :)
