My back tire is skipping in the trainer and I have played with the tension but it's still sticking
Some tires do this, the smooth drum does not have a good grip for a standard road tire.
The solution is to replace your tire with a trainer specific tire. There are several companies that make them. My favorite is Continental but Vittoria and others offer models as well. These tires use a special rubber that grips the drum better and lasts far longer than a standard tire.
#1 - Continental Ultra sport (indoor)
#2 - Tacx indoor trainer tire
#3 - Vittoria Zaffiro indoor trainer tire.
NOTE: THESE TIRES SHOULD NOT BE RIDDEN OUTSIDE ON THE ROADS. They are a special compound for the trainers and do not have enough grip for going around corners on the road.
