Default LPR Truggy Tires for Rough Terrain?

They don't make the Proline Badlands any more. What is a good 3.7 truggy tire with an aggressive tread pattern for rough terrain? They all seem to have a pin type design and I have not found any with bigger lugs. I would prefer not to stretch a MT tire to fit a 3.7 rim if possible. Or do they even make a tire like I am describing to fit a 3.7 rim?

We use these in the UK for astro turf, not sure what there like on dirt. They fit on P/L VTR rims, they any good.

Those have a very aggressive pattern indeed! They say they have a 3.2" mounting diameter and you are able to stretch them over a 4" VTR rim?

What about the new 3.8" Badlands? They're supposed to fit on the VTR rims, according to Proline...

Those are perfect and I will go with those when I buy the VTR wheels. I was hoping there might be something aggressive to fit a set of 3.7 wheels that I already have. So far all I have found are the Holeshots, Crimefighters, etc so I guess there is nothing really aggressive to fit the 3.7 since the 3.2 Badlands are no more now that they make the 3.8 version?
