Reliable/puncture resistance tire and tube options for 14 inch?

Hi guy. I am visiting family in China for a couple months. I am planning to pickup a 14" folding bike and bring in back to the US since they don't sell those over here. I already have a 20" folding ebike for commute so this is going to be a toy. It's going to be either Fnhon 1402/1403 or Dahon K3 or whatever niche stuff I can find. I was planning to put slime tubes and Marathron plus on it just like my main bike. Then I realize neither offer 14 inch variant. So is there any puncture resistance option at all for 14" besides master the fine art of patching?

First post and hello folding forum.

I found it in hollandbikeshop dot com (I can't post link)

It's got a 3/6 protection rating on Schwalbe's website.

This is a 50-254, the good year is a 57-254.

It may not fit if there isn't enough clearance. Not all folding bikes can take that fat a tire.
