innova folding tires?

in the past, i've always zip-tied a folded wire bead spare to my low-rider.
recently replaced with a smaller shelf front rack, want to carry a folder instead.

i've been looking at some of the innova tires:

Innova Pro 26*1.95 690g (more shoulder profile)
Innova Cobra Skin 26*2.00 550g (anti-puncture version)

any positive/negative experiences with either of these tires?

and how long do folders in general "last" on tour. is it a problem having them
bounce around inside your panniers for an extended time.....as in, ever finally
need your folding spare, but find the crease/fold was weakened or rubbed through?

As a Spare in a plastic bag with talc, I would not worry about longevity in storage.

I have carried a Schwalbe tyre for about a month and half without any issues. Given the way they come packed I wouldn't have considered it an issue.
