Vt rider Did some research...answered my own questions. I'm going with stock 17 in. wheels that come with the "S" package wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler 255-75R-17 rubber. It gives me another inch and a half ride height, and it's good with the standard axle ratio. I'll have the dealer adjust the speed and odometer readings with the computer. I got the wheels/tires on Ebay...they come with the TPMS, all balanced and ready to roll.

My questions are:
Will the 17in. wheels that come on the Sport S fit the base Sport? I don't know what the bolt spacing is, but I hope that they're the same. The standard wheel/tire combo on the base model just seems to small for my liking.
-YES

Will 245-75R-16 tires be a decent upgrade if I keep the standard wheels and just get new tires?
-I SAY NO!
-YOU CAN DO THE RUBICON TAKE OFFS. BETTER LOOKING WHEELS, AND MEATIER TIRES.

I don't plan on doing any serious mods to this machine, as it'll be mostly on paved and graded dirt roads, with a few rough trails through the woods.
-THE TIRES WILL BE THE DECIDING FACTOR. STOCK SRA'S ARE OK FOR SMALL DIRT ROADS, BUT THATS ABOUT IT. THOSE ARE BASICALLY STREET TIRES.

All feedback is appreciated.
Good luck on your decision. Just wait for a while before deciding on your wheels/tires.
