The tubeless tire's bead will probably not seat properly and seal on the tube-type wheel's rim. It is more time consuming and messier. Good grip strength is required for removal. If the tire bead comes away from the rim, air and sealant can escape. Sealants that coagulate need to be topped up every six months. Tubes are considered safer because they don't lose air suddenly in case of a puncture. The tire tends to stay cooler since there is no tube.
