There isn't an approved list it has to fall in this:

Mounting Bead Diameter Maximum 95.25mm
Mounted Width Minimum 55.88mm
Overall Diameter Maximum 101.6mm

Diameter Minimum 137.16mm
Width Minimum 60.33mm Tire Rules: No tires created for other vehicle types even if they meet the specifications will be
allowed. Cutting or modifying the tread is allowed. Modifying the tire carcass is prohibited. Trimming the mounting bead of a tire in order to fit a legal rim is allowed. Cutting tires from same class to fit wheels of same is not allowed, regardless if it fits minimum tire dimensions. Cutting tires from one class to another class is not allowed regardless of dimensions. All tire measurements reference the carcass dimensions and do not include the tread depth or width. LP tires are referenced for the minimum 1/8 Truck size and measure the absolute minimal diameter allowable in the 1/8 Truck class.

If you get HB, AKA, TL, JConcepts tires and wheels they will be legal. The PL VTR tires are legal as far as I know, but the PL VTR wheel isn't legal. The PL VTR tires can only be used with the PL VTR wheels, uses 1/8 buggy style bead which doesn't mount to the 'traditional' truggy style wheel beads.
