No. They are a very hard molded rubber. More traction than plastic...less grip than soft rubber.

It's all preference.

A lot of people use ABS because it is way cheaper than buying a name brand tire. ABS is a type of pipe, used in plumbing. You can usually find it at any hardware store. If you get this you will want 2" diameter pipe.

ABS is similar to PVC, but ABS provides more grip then PVC when drifting on asphault.

Yes, you will need to use 26mm wheels and tires.
