Standard 12th rear wheels fit, but maintaining ride height will require larger diameter tires than most 12th scale cars run, Tamiya apparently wanted this car to run 52-45mm tires, try much smaller than that and the chassis will run out of clearance.
Options I see are to use Tamiya RM-01 foams, or F1 foams.
Full size Jaco Rear tires will work, just...
To check max rollout, that's a 78x55 gear for 116+mm roll and stock 52.5mm tires.
Gear selection shouldn't be an issue for 17.5 blinky 1s where 85-110mm roll are the average over a broad range of motors and tracks.
Redbull, where can I pick up a 78t 64p spur gear that you reference here? I want to try your conversion for 64p spurs.
Also, with that spur, what size of diff balls are needed?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
