They are even worse. I have a set. I ran them twice. It was like being on a sheet of ice instead of sealed concrete.

You need some dirt to dig into for them to work.

You could run buggy wheels/tires on a truggy but it would look ridiculous. I envision it looking stupid like this:



You wouldn't be able to run truggy tires on a buggy though. Truggies have longer control arms and have spacers on the hubs. The truggy wheels would simply be too deep to make it on before hitting the shock.
