Yea they are for better bikes than what you own.. they would have a QR end cap on both ends ..
Maybe you can find some Acorn nuts ( good ones, Machined , not the cheap ones that just use a sheet metal dome on the end )
increasing the width .. fattening the ends
or have the whole axle assembly replaced by a QR axle * so it has those ends that the makers of Trainer stand presumes the bike would use
*a job a Bike shop can do , when you bring the wheel in they can see what you have..
maybe a substitute wheel would be simpler .. get one with a QR axle ..
There are polyureathane foam tires that have as their side effect heavy rolling resistance .
But if a workout is your goal, that will add to the workout resistance.
