Trainers - rim drive vs. tire drive ...

I'm consider two different trainers one is a magnetic rim drive - the other is a wind resistance tire drive.

I didn't realize until I started this post that the tire drive was wind resistance. I'm leery of that so if you have opinions on that let me know. I'm not concerned about tire wear. Should I be concerned about rim wear?

Any pointers or observations would be much appreciated.

My only hard fast requirement is that the trainer must work with 20" wheels I prefer quieter and more road-like in that order.

Thanks in advance.
