Would this be a good tire to use for a trainer?

I plan to put my mountain bike on my trainer this winter. Would this be a good / quiet tire to use?

Thanks,
Spud

I use the continental trainer. Has some tread and does not slip on the trainer roller. Stays cool also.

So, I thought a trainer was someone who told a person how to organize workouts for a given result. Tires??? Just kidding.

For trainer use I can't see why this tire wouldn't be fine.

I save my worn out tires and use them on my trainer..... I'm not to worried about crashing if I flat.
