My concern was about bolt pattern and or wheel fitment mainly.. I have owned some rc cars that use odd ball wheels which where not a class standard and required using only the direct manufactures wheel. What it looks like I'm seeing is that in F1 all the wheels fit any of the chassis out there.. is that correct ? Like in 1/10 TC racing all are built as 12mm hub wheels and fit any 1/10 TC car..

The SP-1 has adjustable wheel track so running the Exotek wheels are not needed to get the width. The Exotek wheels are great but the extra off-set may make the car too wide for his rules.

Most of the F1 cars on the market now use the same mounting pattern as the Tamiya F104. There are a few exceptions like the 3Racing FGX but not many.

You want Tamiya F104 Foam wheels, part 51378 are the black version

and Pit Shimizu F104 Rubber Tires

for carpet you will probably want Pit 575/573 maybe 571 fronts
tires:

Find out what they run at your local track first, many places run a "spec" combo which usually ends up being the Tamiya #1031(soft fr) and #1032(hard rear), aka Pit 571/572.
