Question Basher tires

Dug out an old 80's Kyosho converted 2wd buggy and need to replace the old Pro-line Dirt Paw 2.2 DC 42 and DC 43 tires. Looked for a 5" diameter and under tire with no luck. The dirt Paws are 4.2" rough diameter and had the perfect spike tread for the local slate dumps.. Would like to stay away from larger tires for obvious reasons. Anyone know of anything similar still available ? If I can't find anything I'll buy Trencher T tires for it and just buy a 4wd truck. Much Appreciation.

When you say converted 2wd buggy, what buggy, and what was it converted to? That 4.2" spec sounds like stadium truck tire size. Trenchers are good.

It is an old Raider I bought back in 87 or 88 and did some upgrades and larger off road tires. Carried it in an old Jeep for the kids to play with while off roading. Thanks for the heads up on the Trencher tires. I'll give them a try.
