The badlands are great, but I remember some cheap knock off tires on ebay, but I'm not sure if those were only for buggy. check there anyways.

if its just for bashing then any tyre will do really, for racing try Hoboa angle spikes or schumacher spirals depending on grip these may need to be trimmed to reduce grip roll, if the grass is short then schumacher mini pins are very good again may need to be trimmed to suit the grip levels, most tyres will work fairly well on grass though

Try Schumacher mini spike / spirals or Hobao Angle spike tires. That's what I will do.

Proline Dirt Paws (Not sure if theres 1/8 size)

Otherwise Badlands have worked well for me.
