That's a very broad question.
What are you intending to do with it?

What would you like to know?

O.K. You got me there. What would it take to put Sumo Wheels on a CRF450X? And on the Cheap!

I would like to have the option of putting this bike on the street in an instant. And then back to dirt. So I was thinking a pair of 17 inch sumo tires. And since this bike has a 37 inch seat height. And I have a 30 inch inseam. I thought this would help.
It doesn't matter how tall this bike is when it is in the dirt.

No. My wr has the same height and I have a 29" inseam, 29.85" on a good day.

AND, Sumo Wheels and cheap dont really mix well.

I just picked up a set of 17" bands for $100, that is after watching online for about 8 years add $225 for spokes, use my stock hubs, and my own labor.

Buy them out right, new....$1200, hold out for a good deal....750 and up.

Cheap route would be to find a set of used wheels from supermotojunkie.com or you could some new Warp-9's.

I prefer to buy quality used vs. cheap new when the option is there.
If you're not planning on going back to dirt, you could also lace up some 17" rims to your stock hubs.
You'd want to upgrade the front brakes to a 320mm rotor. You'll need a caliper relocation bracket also.

You could buy one of these kits if you want to go the easy route:
