You're correct. Electric front wheels have the same hex drives that the rears do. At least that's what I've found looking at the packages' descriptions. I had an electric rustler for a short time, but I never had the wheels off of it to confirm.
I like my wheels and tires to match front and rear, so I always get two pairs of tires. The fronts rarely wear, so when it comes time to get new tires, I only replace one pair at a time. I don't race though, so if you're going to race, you will likely use different tires in the front to get the best steering and control on the track. It's a bit of trial and error finding the best tires depending on the track's surface material. Asking other racers what tires works best sometimes isn't a bad thing to do, but some things are kept "secret".
