I have been using the same tyre liners for probably the last four years and until three months ago was not being particularly troubled with punctures. On the whole, I was pleased with the product.

In the last three months, however, I've suffered multiple punctures and all bar one display the same symptoms. The inner tubes have cuts running for two/three inches which, of course, weakens them until they eventually give way. A close inspection of the tyre liners shows that they have a number of splits of a similar length. I have come to the conclusion that the splits in the liners have caused the cuts in the inner tube. This appears to be supported by other reviewers' comments, and not only on this website. Within three days of putting in a new inner tube this week, same problem - no external damage to the tyre - 2-3" cuts on the inner tube - weakened inner tube - puncture!

I don't know why the tyre liners should have split; maybe they degrade over time?

I just wish I could have come to this conclusion some weeks ago; I'd have saved myself a lot of money on replacement inner tubes! The splits were always too long to effect a proper repair.

For weeks now this has been doing my head in; I've been varying the route I take on the daily commute believing I must be cycling over something long and sharp!

So, in conclusion, I shall not be using these tyre liners again and will opt for the Panaracer flataway tyre protection tape.

Well, this seemed like a good idea, but it certainly didn't work for me. Now I don't often get punctures on my road bike, but since I was replacing the inner tubes I thought that it would be a good idea to get these liners at the same time.

To start with, getting the liners to fit properly was very difficult and time-consuming. Worse was that, having fitted them to my road bike, I then got 3 punctures within the first week of use. And, since a slight impression of the edge of the liner could be seen on the inner tube, each puncture was undoubtedly CAUSED BY the liners themselves, probably as the tyre flexed going over bumps in the road. Needless to say, the liners were binned - and I've not had a puncture since.

My advice? Save your money - or perhaps spend it on a tyre with a puncture-resistant layer built in.

I have been using the canal paths in the Birmingham are to get to work. Unfortunately inconsiderate people like to leave glass along the pathway and I suffered a number of punctures. I have used this type of product before and it does the job which has saved me much hassle. It does however need to be placed correctly or you can get wobble in the wheel.

Several reviewers stated this product caused punctures. I consequently was meticulous when fitting it to my wife's brand new Claude Butler bike. After the first ride of just 15 miles the back tire went flat. No sign of anything penetrating the tyre. On taking the inner tube out, I found a 4mm "slit" in the tube. On checking the position, it coincided with the overlap at the end of the Slime Liner. The tyre was intact and not damaged at this point, so the Slime Liner must have been the cause. Strange as I have had these liners in my tyres for about two years and not had a puncture. I will watch what happens closely and if any more damage is caused by the liner I will throw them away. If you use them, beware.

Pro's:
Haven't had a puncture since fitting them eight months ago - even when pieces of glass have cut through the tyre casing.

Con's:
Difficult to fit.
They make the tyre heavier, rolling resistance is noticeably worse.

Fitted these liners in 1.25 inch MTB tyres about three years ago - ie ostensibly the liner width is too big for my tyres, but in fact they have worked a treat, having apparently moulded to the tyre interior shape perfectly. My puncture rate went down dramatically from the start, the tyres themselves are not very resistant to penetration but I would say with the liner almost puncture-proof (I have still had a couple of punctures over the period). I inflate my tyres to 100 psi, though they can't hold this pressure for very long, and have not noticed any increase in rolling resistance, which if anything I would say is further reduced the extra stiffness imparted. My last puncture was however caused by the overlapping liner end cutting into the inner tube. I hope to have stopped this recurring by taping over it with a bit of gaffer tape.

The previous ones worked well, but for some reason I could not get these to work with my new tyres. The liner would "pinch" the inner tube, causing a large puncture after a few km. I suspect it is because the inside of my puncture-resistant tyres is a lot less "grippy" than my previous all-rubber tyres, allowing the liner to "ruck up" just enough to cause problems.

Had Slime strips on both 26 x 1.5 and 700c x 35 & 42 wheels for thousands of miles on city roads and paths. No punctures. Never had to change the tubes except when the tyres wore out - and there was no tube damage visible. Taped the strip overlap to avoid any possible friction on the tube.

The sales brochure does recommends 700c 28-35 size. Therefore using it on sizes under 28 x 622 could be a whole different dynamic as a strip for 28-35 (intended to protect the rolling surface not the sides) will go most of the way around the inner circumference of any tyre smaller than 25 and the constant flexing of the side walls (and the strip) will cause damage to the tube.
