Has anyone used the M-tec pre-glued stuff (PSA) on their tubes as wear patches?

Yes I have for years there fine but the glue is not as good as Boston. If I were you I would put a thin bond of Boston then they're fine.

Yes sorry bloody iPhone!! Its just the pre glued is not strong enough and is pretty useless once the elements get at it. use your preferred glue for the type of tubes you have PVC or Hypalon.
