I had some conti trainer tyre for about 7 years but it started to crack, had a vitoria one since and going well. i did get a spoke go on a trainer wheel during the final stage of the tour of sufferlandria once and swapped it for a road wheel with a gp 4 season on it so i could finish the session. I did about 90 minutes and after the tyre had squared off and was ruined. That was on a KK road machine at 2.5 turns, usual to stop it slipping.

I use a trainer wheel, with a close ratio block (12-23) as I found I could really notice the difference changing gears especially when around FTP effort. I have a trainer tyre on this wheel, it must be >5yrs old by now, to be honest it is so hard, cracked and shiny it probably slips on the trainer quite a bit - but that will artificially inflate my virtual power numbers, so all good.

I use a trainer tyre (on an old wheel) ever since my trainer shredded my nice road tyre in about 10 sessions.

2nd Schwalbe turbo tyre blew out over Christmas in same manner as 1st but much sooner. Chucked an old front gatorskin on that I had lying about after changing a pair when the rear wore out.
Can't see me buying another turbo tyre based on experience so far.
