Possible wheel swap on new car purchase

Ok, I am ready to pull the trigger on a new focus tmr. What are the chances the dealer will swap out the current 16" alloy wheels on the car I want for the 17"s on an SEL sedan they have on the lot? They have 2-3 of these SEL sedans on the lot, so its not like I am taking their only wheel set. Is this a faux pas in the negotiation room? Does this lead to giving the dealer the upper hand, and you getting raped accordingly? If I didnt do a wheel swap at the time of purchase, what are the chances of me purchasing/swapping wheels with another owner? I feel like the second route is just going to be a headache and more money than its worth.
