I was wondering how effective the liners are myself. The have them at Walmart now for $9 so maybe give them a try and see for myself.
I do know the thorn-proof tubes and goo made a big difference for me. Used to get a flat almost every long trip but now only once every couple years. Thorn-proof helps a lot with punctures but also the goo stops un-noticed slow leaks which is the "silent killer".
