Easier to fit. Smaller packed size. You can run the string through the hole a number of times if the hole is large - thus it fits various size holes. Over 'ere truckies use them. On Road Trains - the seen - tractor - 10 wheels - first traioler 8 wheels 2 & 3 trailer add 16 - total 34 wheels - that is a lot of potential flat tyres and they use string.
