Rollers, tires

Good morning all,
I'm about to buy my first set of rollers, narrowed it down to Nashbar reduced radius or travel tech Pro Alloys, the latter have the advantage of not only being on sale but no shipping. Should I get trainer tires or just cheap ones to use with the rollers?

You might want to ask your question on a different section of the forum, where it might get more views. Maybe the general cycling? http://www.bikeforums.net/forumdispl...ing-Discussion

Welcome to BF! Your question might be more effectively researched in the Training and Nutrition forum. Good luck with the trainer.

Welcome to bikeforums!

~~~~As for trainer tires, it depends how long you plan on using the trainer. If you plan to ride for extended periods of time, i.e. hours on end, then it is recommended that you get trainer tires which are more durable and handle heat generated from friction better. They'll be cheaper than wearing down, often expensive, road oriented tires over the long run of things.
