    A little help here , l would to change tire and wheel size on my 2012 sport . Stock tires are the 18 inch Bridgestone's with the fake chrome wheels . I would to get 16 inch wheels and tires . Does dropping down two inches mess up the drivetrain or anything else. I'am not sure if this makes sense , that's why IAM asking . Thank you

    Sports have 17" wheels. The tires should have their size directly on the sidewall of the tire..265/65/17 (I think, off the top of my head)

    Regardless, dropping wheel diameter will not affect drivetrain. Just make sure you get the appropriately sized tire to go along with it.
