So many vintage bikes by nature run tube type tires, what's your experience choosing the correct size, and what's your favorite brand?

There are 'heavy-duty' and 'Super-heavy-duty' tubes out there, are they worth the extra coin for casual street riding or commuting?

The only thing that seems to come up when I search the interwebs is to change tube and rim strips whenever you change tires. Cleaning rust out of the rim and treating the surface are also recommended, as are checking the rims for trueness and spoke tension and checking wheel bearings.

I try and get the smallest range tube for the tire I'm using but who knows if that's a good idea or not. Lighter is the only measurable benefit.
