The size u are refering to is the width of the tire. The wider the tire the more grip but u have to make sure that they don't rub on the suspension. Generally run wider tires on the rear than the front.

28mm is pretty much the standard on the rug with foams...
24mm for the asphalt with Rubber

I know for foams on carpet everyone runs 28mm. For asphalt I know they dont run 28mm. I think it is 24 or 26 depending on preference.

Generally, no. But I do know that the user "teamgp," who frequents this website has used them in the past, with good success.

Typically, the foam used in the Jaco Nitro shoes have a different foam (more dense) than normal foams that are meant for carpet only. I'm sure you could use them but, they wouldn't have as much "grip" as well. If you looking to save money, it's not worth it. Nitro shoes may go as cheap as $10 a pr. while regular Parma foam tires (which I like) can be found at $13 a pair. It's worth to get the Parma tires or Jaco Carpet foams or Trc foam tires rather than the nitro shoes which are primarily meant for outdoors. Just see what your locals are running and go what they are using.

Good Luck.
