Once you remove the tire you will likely but not always have to put new sealant in to get the tire to seal. I would say you could run your psi as low as 30-35 safely. The tires will hook up much better. You should still carry a tube on your rides. If you rip a hole in a tire there is no trail fix for it. I've know quite a few people who stoped running tubeless and started putting tubes in their tubless rims. Best of luck. If you have problems run a search and that should help answer questions.
