Tires for roller use?

After a couple of days Ive noticed some wear on my rear tire. I had read and understood roller use would wear down tires faster than road use and thats ok, but any recommendations as to which tires I should run?

Btw those Bontrager slicks were sponsored by my LBS so Im not sweating them wearing down quickly as again, I got them for free, new.

Cheapie Bontrager slicks are exactly what I'm using - mated to some cheapie bontrager rims. I just swap out the whole wheelset-up whenever I use the rollers. I'm sure when I blow through them, I'll just use some older road tires on the same rims.
