Default Best wheels for rough landing patch

Hi,
I'm new to electric rc flying and I currently have a hz supercub dsm rtf which i fly at a trail nearby. The trail has mud patching which is pretty rough and I do not have other choices other than to land in this patch,though i land my plane with the rear wheel touching the ground first it always ends up with the prop hitting the ground, so is there a wheel that I could use that is suitable for such a patch or is there something wrong with my landings? Pls help.

BIG!
Round is good too!

3" upgrades on the SC are VERY VERY common. I think you can get 1" on the back.
Just make sure it fits the axle.

Poke around this site for awhile for specifics.

If you're going to learn to fly them, you have to learn to fix them.

Dave Brown Lite Flights are worth a google.

I have a pair of 5-inchers on my 5lbs WWI biplane and it almost doesn't need skis to operate off snow...

Ask me why your DX5e is doomed... and how to fix it.
