Two things I forgot to mention in regards to tire liners.

First thing is that you have to sand down the edge of the liner that will be in contact with the tube because it will eventually rub a hole in thin tubes.

Second thing is that you have to use a thicker tube (cheap heavy Walmart type of tubes usually work) so that even after you sanded down the edge of the liner the likely hood of the liner still rubbing a hole is severly reduced. And of course the use of a thicker tube means more rotational weight.
