Just following up on my original post to say that using a split inner tube as a tire liner did work OK - I haven't had any problems yet, doing muni rides where I did things like practice log jumping.

Downside is that it's somewhat heavier, and when I deflate the tire it doesn't stay seated on the rim - it slips off the shelf where it's supposed to be, and slides back into the center. The shelf is pretty narrow, and the split tube doesn't leave enough room for the tire bead to stay securely seated without help from air pressure.

On the other hand I was able to pump up the deflated tire with a hand pump, since it's still pretty well sealed even without being properly seated.

This is with the stock QU-AX 27.5+ rim; tire is the WTB Bridger TCS 3.0 fast/light.
