i have only been looking at the local hobby town and they have the GRP gandinis in 40 shore. They also Have the TRC but they have the colored stickers, like pink, double pink, orange, green, double purple, and a few other combos. BSRs are the same way.

Depends on the manufacture of the tires some still use colors, but most use shore ratings.

I think electric uses colors but I still think inside there should be a rating on the box. Corally is for sure electric.

Nitro Foams are GRP(Elliggi, Fast Tire, Power Tire), Nitro Shoes, K-Factory. GQ Tires, ATS Tires, Ennetti Tires, Twister Tires. I'm sure there are more, but this is all I can think of atm.

Top one right now IMO. I like K-Factory as well, but they are not widely available at every LHS like Nitro Shoes and the rim is definately weaker. Still great.
