IME they ride like crap (think tooth rattling overinflated tubed clinchers in ride quality). Best done only in an emergency. Had to do it with Schwalbes and Hutchinsons before. Not a fun ride.

I could be wrong but I don't think some of those tubeless tires that sucked were that way due to the bead. The Vittoria ones have a real high TPI so wouldn't think they'd ride like crap as Hutchinsons did.
Vittorias are made differently, and given higher TPI, they might ride better with a tube in them. BikeRadar noted they were quite fragile


However....you can get 320TPI Open Corsa CXIII tubed tires that ride great as tubed tires for much less.
