The Kurt Kinetic Road Machine or Pro model has less drift and no O rings so no leaks. My tire seems OK after about 1500 miles on the KK plus about 3000 miles on the road I can't speak for the Cycleops. Speed to power is more reliable on the KK also.
I have the CycleOps FLuid2. Problem is that the trainer resistance increases as it warms up, unlike the Kurt Kinetic. Also, it is not very reliable if you want to use the 50$ Kurt Kinetic Power computer. In retrospect, I would have bought a Kurt Kinetic due to its even resistance and better performance with the "Power computer". Of course, now I am wondering about a Tacx Fortius for next winter ?
In terms of tires, I used a Michelin Carbon tire on my trainer with little breakdown. Also, Tacx and Conti make dedicated tires for a trainer.
