Default What is the point of tubeless tires?

Seriously, what is the point of these things? What problem do they solve and is it worth the extra maintenance hassles for non-racing riders?

You can run lower pressures without the chance of a pinchflat, there is nothing to pinch. This can be usefull off road when you want lower pressure for traction. Otherwise they don't solve any problem IMHO. Personally I can't be bothered with the hassle.
