Heavy Duty Tubes

Are 4mil heavy duty tubes a good idea or are they bad on roads at high speed etc. Some forums suggest they run hot on highways?

The thick tube wall does generate heat at speed.

You shouldn't need to air down low enough to risk a pinch flat anyway - a bike this heavy I would go probably no lower than 15psi if I were riding in rough rocky terrain.
