TRG and CROSS rims are the best quality for rubber. TRG2203 for the rear and TRG2105 for the front are the most readily available. CROSS rims for the F103 are harder to find.

RIDE also make rims for rubber but quality is poor and a waste of money.

you can use shimizu tires, which are designed to be mounted on any foam wheel

What wheels are you running?
If they are the Tamiya foams wheel i can understand you got vibrations.
If you run aftermarket wheel, it depends on what brand they are.
I got blade wheels and the one i have run true and after mounting the foams and trueing them i got hardly any or none vibrations
If you have the Tamiya rubber wheels and cut the inside rim that holds the rubber tire from moving in and mount foam on them,then you got yourself also a nice set after trueing.

Are you using the trailing arm up rights? They are designed to take away steering. I guess you are using these as you said your axles are getting loose.throw on the stock pieces and uses those if you are not using them now and you will get your steering back.
For the vibration use shims on your axles,or get rid of theTamiya wheels. That sound you hear when you corner is "The Tamiya sound" this goes away with good wheels.
