Default Diffrence between Nitro and Electric foams?

Is there any diffrence between 1/10 electric and nitro foam tires? There is a killer deal going on ebay for $10 a pair of foams, but it states that they are for a nitro car, with no mention or electric.

I am a newbie when it comes to foams. Is there any diffrence? Or is the diffrence in the wheels?

Generally, the change will be in the width of the tire. For example, Jaco offers “Nitro Shoes” at widths of 26&30mm while their “Touring Car Foam Tires” are offered at 24&28mm.

If you know the width and compound of the tires you're looking at, you should be able to compare them to what's offered at Jaco or TRC's websites. If they're "mystery foams", be warned - you get what you pay for.
