I've wrapped punctured tubes around new tubes and that seems to be a better way to protect your tires than this. This item also adds weight so if you're trying to minimize that, these aren't for you.

I never thought about that. Have to try it. Do you glue it or just employ it as a spacer to allow more puncture tolerance?

The pricey road tires do something similar with an embedded plastic insert to take the punctures.

No glue, just use a scissors and cut it from valve to valve, then inflate the new tube 40%, wrap it, and then stuff it in the tire.

I agree that wrapping the tire is probably the best protection. Especially if you start with a "puncture resistant" tube and wrap it around.

However, if your not worried about weight, doing the above AND getting something like the self repair tires work very well and if you in a bind, (ie. no spare and a few miles to go) the "self repair" slime at the very least will slow the leak and allows you to get somewhere where you can buy and change out the tube.

These suck.. Don't work, add weight, off balance, and sometimes create a mess.

In my experience, this is correct. I've slimed some tires before. Still had to walk home with a flat.

Puncture resistant tubes also didn't do crap. About the only thing that does is that vinyl strip that goes between the tube and the tire. PITA to get installed correctly though.

Yeah... makes it harder to feel the road, but sometimes it's safer when you don't know where the road has been.

I came here to say exactly this.

I've also had issues with the fill valves clogging. I'll never buy slime tubes again.
