You want wheels and tyres for the F103. Pit Shimizu makes F103 equivalents of their F104 tyres, with similar part numbers. Part number 571 and 572 are the popular F104 tyres, so for the F104W you want 541 and 542 tyres for the F103, and a set of F103 wheels made for foam tyres. Rear tyres are 5mm smaller in diameter than the kit tyres, but the motor pod will let you lower the axle to use them fine.
