Turbo trainers - rim or tyre resistance?

What is better? Turbo trainers that make contact with the tyre, or the ones that have rollers on the rim of the wheel?

I can imagine that the wheel rim ones don't wear the tyre as much and means you don't need a trainer tyre fitted, but do they offer the same feel as riding on the road?

Your thoughts are appreciated.
