Default VTA Tires and Bodies

Bodies are easy to find as long as you're not looking for HPI. The Protoform and McAllister bodies are readily available.

Rims - those you'll have to get creative with, possibly buying front and rear from two different places. However, that may not matter as tires are very difficult to find and what is out there is being priced astronomically out of sight.

This was the best single find out there but it's for rear rims only. Hope it helps a bit.

Not to long ago, I hooked a dude up with new, sealed in bags set (front and rear, rims and tires) for a decent price. It's a d*** shame he never would acknowledge that he got them. he never made a Paypal claim/responded to PM's. USPS tracking showed delivered so I gave up on ever hearing from him.

Makes me reluctant to do it again...

This is in Germany but may certainly be worth a group of you putting in one order. Delivery look to be 7 - 10 days. They have rims, tires and HPI bodies. It's certainly worth a look.
