Don't worry about asking questions, that's mostly all that I come here for! I use Bell, "no-mor flats" that I get at Walmart for $19.96 plus tax. I can't speak for the lightweights, but for me there really isn't all that much difference in the way they ride. As for wheel damage, I haven't really heard of any incidents that didn't involve riding through/over something that should have been avoided in the first place.
