It should not be any problem. I've used Pitstop with the same tires before and it has not caused any problems. However, I would suggest you store your wheels/tires with the valves at 4:00 or 8:00 to minimize the chance of the sealant clogging the valves.

also, do not allow the tyre to deflate, especially if the bike is stored with the wheels on the ground - sealant can stick the deflated tube to itself, when you re-inflate the tube fails

This happened to me. Tire was only at half life too.
