You can do whatever you want as long as you don't put to big of a tire on. Stay around the 32in range and you'll be fine, no matter what size of rim.

The Wrangler Sahara's come with stock 18's. I suggest you get 15 or 16 inch rims. 1 they allow your tires to gain more grip in off-road situations, and 2 the tires for 18's are ridiculous expensive! We own a Sahara, and when these tires wear out i'm buying a smaller set of rims, but bigger tires. It cost the same as buy new tires for the 18 inch wheels!

I too just bought a 2010 Wrangler Sport. It came with the 16" rims and small tires and I was thinking about putting the 15" wheels on there for that reason of more meat, however, would 15" rims fit without rubbing the brake caliper? I also have a 2006 Chevy p/u and it came stock with 17" wheels and I would like to go to a 16", but it would rub the caliper. Thanks.

The 15" rims won't rub the calipers. You can prove this for yourself by measuring from the outside of the caliper to the inside of the rim. If there's more than 1/2" there you will know how much room you really have for the smaller rim. But, I am sure that the 15" rims WILL fit without hurting your calipers. The only thing you have to worry about now is which tires you want to put on those new rims.
