what tyres for turbo and outside

I class myself quite modestly as a tyre expert. Whenever someone posts those boring 'which tyre shall I buy' I always think Mich pro race 3 whatever the weather and roads, even mountain biking if you're keen. :)

but If I use my powertap on the trainer and the road what tyre is the best bet now?

I can't get a dedicated powertap turbo wheel yet and I'm so obsessed that I need power on all rides.

So what are you guys using if you are using the same wheel for road and turbo?

    Vittoria Open Pave for me.

    Does both more than admirably!

    Expensive quality tyre there Nap' so I presume your turbo doesn't chew the tyre up then?

    I'm going to try the pro race on there later as I can't be bothered to change tyre to a turbo specific one again.

    No, doesn't chew the tyre. They are awesome.

    I Used a Conti GP and it looked knackered after a couple of goes on the turbo!

    I've been using a Conti trainer tyre on the turbo and Spesh Armadillo for this time of year. It's a bit of a pain to change them over but I only tend to go out on the road at the weekend and do turbo sessions during the week, so not too bad.

    Have been considering getting a cheap, 2nd hand powertap and using it only on the turbo though. But I'd rather have a MTB powertap first!

    Got a second one on order. Going to use it as trainer wheel in winter, then stick a cover on it and use it as a race wheel in summer so can justify the cost. Trouble is, I'm going to have to wait till January so I'm looking for a stop gap solution.
