As subject implies, can we use additives for buggy tyres and which ones?

Sure, Assuming your not running pin spikes on asphalt just about any traction compound will work, Paragon, Jack the Gripper, StickyFingers. On dirt with aggressive tires Trinity (Epic) makes a few spray on compounds such as

Yep, WD-40, belt dressing, basically anything that will soften the tires will work.
