What do I need to know to buy all-new wheels for my 2006 Scion xB?

So it's become time to replace a wheel on my car, and I've decided to replace ALL the wheels on my car, along with all new tires. I know that my current wheel size is 15" (stock). What else should I know when shopping for new wheels - are there any surprises that wouldn't spring to mind normally? Specific wheel sizes I need, or what sizes are available to me, or if certain sizes have unexpected pitfalls of their own? Extra parts or hub assemblies or something that I'll also have to get, etc etc? I know well enough about cross-checking prices, getting thorough reviews of the various tires that can come packaged with the sets, etc. I'm currently browsing mostly through wheelsnext.com, altho their packaged tires seem a bit underwhelming.
