There are several factors that you will need to determine through research; first, what is the size of the output shaft of the motor, what type of shaft is it (round, squared, etc), what type of microcontroller is driving the robot, what type of encoders are you looking at, etc. You will need to research all of this information before it can be determined if existing encoders will work on this robot style.
