Is the nominal size of a bathtub the distance between the studs? The distance inside the shower enclosure over my tub is 58-1/8" so I guess it's a 60" tub?

Yes. The best place to measure the distance is between the walls, at the room side lip of the tub and subtract 1" for the 2 pieces of wall board. The surround tops are made in a variety of styles of unknown thickness and projections.



60" is probably the most common tub size in the US.
