No. The weight is not the problem. Where is the tube damaged? If it's the inner part, you need better rim tape. If it's a slit or "Snakebite" on the outer edge, your air pressure is too low. If you sprinkle some talc or baby powder into your tire and rub it all around before you install a tube, you'll be able to replace your tubes a lot quicker.
