another thing to consider...
Tube type tires lose air immediately and have a more 'catastrophic' failure mode at any speed.
Tubeless tires, when punctured - lose air much more slowly and give you a good deal more warning and time to recover before the tire is completely flat.
You typically feel them being wiggly and weird feeling and have time to pull over.
