the main benefit of tubeless tyres is they normally go down slowly allowing you to get it stopped.
Tubed tyres go down in the blink of an eye and make for some interesting times if you can stay on it
Tubeless can be plugged reinflated and ride away within minutes, tubeless have to be stripped and patched or a new tube fitted
There is a reason why all modern cars run tubeless tyres, give me tubeless any day
