Riding indoors on a trainer/roller will generate much more friction than when riding outdoors because our tires are always touching the same spot of the roller drum, this will cause extra heat and friction that most tires designed to be ridden outdoors cannot handle. We recommend that you either use an old set of tires to prevent wearing your nice outdoor ones or consider a trainer tire that is specifically designed for use on trainers only.
