What specific mf01x kit did you buy? The Merc and the Jimny come with standard touring car wheels (52mm?) with rally block tires on them, while the Beetle and the Escort Mk2 come with M chassis wheels, which are smaller.

Any M-chassis or touring wheel will physically fit. I've run my MF01X on everything from 55D M-chassis tires to very small 1.9 crawler tires. It usually wears 26mm touring wheels with Super Grip tires. Mine seems to be the most fun on pavement due to the short suspension travel, although it's fine off-road at lower speeds.

What is it you don't like about the stock wheels? Size or style?

I like the kit wheels but i want to put my own spin on the Escort no decals and no blue wheels.

I know what you mean. With the white shell I like the Rothmans livery with gold minilites ( a set of which I have lurking ready!!!) when the clear shell comes out later in the year I may get a couple to play around with

From what I can tell, the M-Chassis will fit fine, as should any Sedan wheel, I ran RC4wd Landy 1.55 beadlocks without a problem on mine until last week when I put gear reduction units from a GF-01Tr on it.

I don't have the Escort, but I have the Jimmy. Don't think that Escorts have hit the States yet.
