does anyone use tubless tires for just recreational road cycling? If so, why do you prefer them over 'tubed' tires.

I dont thick anyone uses them because the turn recreational riding into severe punishment riding.
I didn't know they HAD tubeless tires for bicycles. :-/
I have tubeless tires on my MTB. I once used the MTB for my commute, when the RB was out of service. AndrewP is right. It was punishment. Anyhow, I will not again use tubeless tires after these ones wear out. These ones I've got are foldable, kevlar-bead types. They're heavier than their tube-requiring cousins. Tubeless tires also require powerful air-compressors to inflate when the bead comes off the rim. So far I have been lucky not to have had any flats yet while riding the MTB, trail or pavement. I carry with me a few CO2 cartridges, just in case, but I have yet to find out if it will do the job.
