I gotcha, that helped clear a lot up.
Just find some good 2.2 dish wheels with a slight offset and you should be fine. 2.2 truggy wheels are going to be the way to go. They should be a slight bit bigger in diameter, clearing the steering knuckle. As for tires, I agree, I don't like the stretched look either. Proline makes a Dirt Hawg 2 tire that will fit on regular 2.2 wheels.
Something like these...
Dirt Hawg 2 tires on deep dish rims.
