I have a Wahoo Kicker Snap that blew my road tire in a couple of days. Any recommendations on a durable trainer tire?
I had good luck with the Continental trainer tire on my CompuTrainer. Schwalbe also makes one as does Cyclops.

I also have the Kickr Snap and picked up this one:
Hi Eric, I’ve been using the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Home Trainer tire. It seems to work well. I’ve been using them for a few years. Currently on the CycleOps Magnus trainer.
I also use the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro Home Trainer tire, but I have had two of those develop a weak point in the tread and “bubble up”. The weak point develops suddenly and you start hearing a bump-bump-bump sound. The first time I heard it, I didn’t stop riding. The tire blew with an incredibly loud noise. I am now on my third Vittoria. I also managed to ruin a Michelin road tire pretty quickly, so I am sticking with the trainer tires. They seem to last about 3500 miles on Zwift.
I vote for Continental Hometrainer II tire.
I had a small “bubble” form on my older road tire as well - and had the bump-bump-bump sound while riding - this was relatively soon after moving to a indoor trainer. It’s left me thinking that an indoor trainer tire will work better. I’ve ordered the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro - will see what happens.
I got the Continental Hometrainer II to use with the Wahoo Kickr Snap and Iike it very much
