Froze, well said. I had some Slime liners that wore long cuts into the tube, leading to holes after five or six mountain bike rides. The edge of the liners left a distinct mark around the tube, and it wasn't difficult to correlate the slices in the tube to the liner. Needless to say, I was not impressed with Slime tire liners.

I've used Mr Tuffy liners in the past with better success, but I did wear a hole in the tube at the liner overlap after a year or so of use. I could live with annual tube replacement.
