Not sure if it's a good idea or not but it works.
I don't think that that is a good idea, I used to do that with narrow tires and the sidewall of the tire wore out.
I would suggest for tire longevity and rideability that you get wide slick tires.

As others have stated that the rollers really help develop form and balance.
