Hi All
Not sure i have put this in the right forum :oops: Was thinking of getting a set of rollers. Now the question is what tyres are best used and what pressures ? If i use a road tyre and not turbo specific what is the wear rate like ? Thanks

    If you're using Rollers then no need to get specific tyres, if using a Turbo then a turbo tyre is not essential eitherjust use a old or inexpensive tyre.

    must confess, I have noticed higher wear on the rear using my rollers, althhough I doubt that it's anywhere near as bad as being on a turbo - no difference on the front though.

    I'm now using an old tyre/wheel for roller sessions
