One last reminder on trainer tires — they are generally NOT intended to be ridden on outside (and most have a warning that they aren’t safe to use outdoors).  If y0u go the trainer tire route, please pay heed and keep them on the trainer!!!

I’ve never really paid attention to the wear-dots on my tires, truthfully.  As much debris and glass we have on our local roads, I’ve generally found good sized nicks and cuts in my tires far before they wear out or start to show other means of wear.  The exception here is in the wintertime, when those summer tires see the end of their lives on my trainer and get enough wear to be swapped out for the following season 🙂
