Well...I have 21" front wheel and I don't trust the rim to hold a tubeless tyre. It doesn't have the extra rim bead (like a shoulder) to retain the tyre in case it deflates. So for me the 5mm UHD tube (Continental) does an excellent job. No more mini-spikes (from plants) that used to pierce all the way through the standard tube.

Later edit: Damn, a long and thin nail in my front tire (the one with UHD tube) from my last offroad trip. After 5 days the tire was still holding some pressure, just like a tubeless would. Not bad....
