Default Re: Flat resistent tires?

I havent looked much into them, but for those using them in applications where a flat tire would be hazardous (such as us), I thought it'd be a good choice. I plan on grabbing 3 pairs for my Moose Jaw - Vancouver tour, as riding that kind of distance I can't afford to have a flat tire at almost any point, particularly on the highway. My only issue is some of them arent rated for bicycle use, so I'm curious as to what the disadvantages are. I imagine heat would be a big one, being one solid piece, it would stretch, making the tire looser, though to the point of being dangerous is the question, whereas with a normal tire it increases the pressure in the tube, which then presses the seal on the tire tighter.
