I've had good luck using a CO2 cartridge to seat the bead. Like you, my rims generally aren't ready and I don't get enough flats to motivate change. I do have a bike now that is tubeless ready, and I'll probably remove the tubes and throw in some sealant one of these days. I'm not anti-tubeless by any means. It's more that I just haven't had anything happen to give me a push in that direction.
