I've ridden out (Man Boobs, LOA, Mashiter, Roller Coaster to Perth Drive) with 7 psi in the rear tyre (Michelin WILD Enduro REAR) and a Tannus Tubeless Insert because a faulty valve (my mistake - installed it with the incorrect base) that I couldn't remedy on the trail. The upside of the Tannus was I could roll the bead enough to inspect the inside of the valve (inside the rim), I then managed to seat the bead again with the EDC 100 ml pump and get 22-24 psi in the tyre before I decided I had enough air to start rolling. As long as I carved rather than squared any corners I managed to roll out (and climb - it seemed rude to pass LOA just because of a flat rear tyre!) without damaging the tyre or the rim. It wasn't the most fun lap ever but it was better than a long slow walk and better than the insert out/ tube in pfaff that I have seen occur.
