The merv comes with 12mm hex, best check that these are.
they are 12mm hex, im more curious about the off set and the width of the inner wheel and if i will be able to thread thw wheel nut on.

They come with an adapter assortment and washers. The smallest inner adapter will fit the diameter of 1/16 Traxxas axles
is this similar to the axial wheels where you can also use the bushings from the rocker arms?

HPI uses this design on all their 2.2 wheels:
The pic shows HPI Dish 2.2, but Scorch wheels are the same.
yep, same concept. basically you just use the bushings that come in the rocker arms (part 5123 i believe) and insert it into the wheel just like you would the adapter you are showing. i happened to save mine after i did the bearing swap in the rockers and it worked perfect.
It looks a lot like proline desperadoes it might be easier to get those
