Default HPI Kyosho?

The HPI Super Nitro size wheels and tires fit but they make the car too wide for Tamiya bodies. I haven't tried the Kyosho Superten wheels but they should fit but may also make the car too wide.

Good luck. The whole super nitro segment died due to a lack of tire and wheel choices/ availability. This unlike 1/10th TC with loads of choices and availability. There were adapters available somewhere that allowed the use of 1/10th 235 class nitro onroad wheels and tires to be used on super nitros but that is also a class that is dead so you'll be lucky to find either.

Man I was thinking on doing the same thing. I loved my TGR when I had it and one of my LHSs has a NIB one on the wall but the price is still high. Anyway when I did run mine what I did was turn the hex adapters around backwards then use the HPI Super Nitro rims and tires. Ream out the center hole of the Super Nitro rims so that the lip on the hex adapter fits through the hole in the rim. This will move the wheels in to very close to the stock width and regular Super Nitro bodies will fit over it. Hopefully you can find some rims and tires for it. I found out here the 33R compound worked the best.
