Questions?? Need help with tires for Tamiya Road Wizard F1

Hi everyone. New to this forum. I'm glad I found it.

Dug out an old car I have part #58053 Tamiya Road Wizard F1 but it needed some parts and some new tires. Found the part online so thats good but coming up empty on the tires. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

As near as I can measure the fronts measure 55mm outside dia, 36mm inside dia, and 25mm width. Rears are ID 60mm, ID 36mm, and 40mm width. Like I said I am going off 25 yr old tires.


Thanks again for any help offered.

Sounds very close to F103 tires. They shouldn't be too hard to get.

The Road Wizard does take standard F1 foams, look for tyres made for the F103. don't get ready mounted tyres, although the front wheels will fit on the rear wheel fitment on the Road Wizard is unique to the car and normal F1 wheels won't fit on.

What wheels will work on the Road Wizard?

I was told the RIDE F103 series has the same “small hex” drive mount for the rears and I was just about to order these:
RIDE F103 Rear Wheels 25001 & 24001 or 24005 tires for the rear
RIDE F103 Front Wheels 25000 & 24000 or 24003 tires for the front

Will these work OK or where can I get some wheels and tires that will work on the Tamiya Raod Wizard 5853 ?

Ride tires will not work,I am guessing that you didnt read the post above. You can only use foam tires,there are NO rubber tire / wheels for the road wizard.
