I dpubt it. Does it have a lever so you can release the pressure of the roller? That would be the only thing I'd be worried about. But even that would make stuff all difference I think.

+1 the roller may leave a 'flat spot' on the tyre, bump- bump -bump when going arround.

Another +1 = +3
one of the tacx techs on the tacx forum saying to release the roller after a session, otherwise it can distort the tyre.
