Bike stores I could recommend are more the downtown ones, I'm afraid. I like Urbane Cyclist off Queen Street.
On wheels, unless you have a seriously high-end road bike, the wheels it comes with will be fine for sport/exercise/commuting. And the type of wheels you put on a bike will be determined by the type of bike it is -- most road bikes just won't have the clearance for the fat-tired wheels you get on some hybrids.
If you want more detail, you might want to ask about the wheels on one of the more active forums -- commuting forum, perhaps. We're a slow lot over here.
