Default Best Tires for Loose and Sandy Dirt

I'm running an electric truggy in the southwest and the sandy soil here can be challenging. The truggy really hooks up when we water our homemade track, but if we leave it dry, I get a lot of oversteer.

I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for good rear tires to use with loose and sandy soil. Any suggestions on general setup are welcome too.

Thanks

These would probably work pretty good. I have a set that I use on my 1/8th scale buggy (buggy version) when I bash it down in a river bottom, and they seem to work really well in the sandy conditions, wet or dry.

Yeah, that looks interesting. Looks like Pro-Line has a 2.2" version and two tire compounds. I'm leaning towards the M3 compound (softer), but I'm wondering how it'll hold up to my brushless setup. I'm usually, going easy on the throttle, but still...

Can anyone say much about the differences to Pro-Lines compounds?
