Turning a Rav4 Sport into a Basic

I just purchased a '07 Rav4 Sport V6 - I'd been looking for used Rav4 for some time and as it turned out this was the car that drove well and that I could afford. i was happy about the V6, but could care less about it being a Sport.

After driving it for a week, I'm feeling the Sport is a drawback. I would much prefer a smoother ride to better handling.

What do you think of the idea of trying to turn it into a Basic, by trading the low profile alloy wheels for standard wheels and having regular shocks put in, rather then these 'sport tuned' shocks?

Do you think it will make much of a difference (I test drove both and do think the basic was better, thinking back on it). Will I get descent value for the alloy rims? I would only pursue this if there wasn't much of an out of pocket expense.

Thanks for your thoughts on this.
