Default Tyre strapping

Seen a couple of videos showing tyre strapping lately.
looks to stop the ballooning.
What do you think of this?

Most tires are built with internal ribbing now to prevent ballooning. I almost run all AKA or HB tires with AKA foam and there is hardly no ballooning at all. My driveway/tuning tires are some old holeshots and at about half throotle the car is undriveable.
