Before Hobo comes in and tells you that the rims are just the outer portion of the wheel, I'll at least give you the answer you're looking for...
No, going from 15 inch to 17 inch won't kill your car in the long OR short run, unless there isn't any room for the wheels and tires you intend to put on.
As long as the overall diameter of the whel and tire package stays very close to the same, you don't need any other accessories (other than maybe some locking lug nuts so people don't steal your wheels)
