Inner Tube Question

So I've changed my tyres to something a little narrower. I've went from 2.1 width to 1.65 and I've noticed the sizings on my current inertness are 1.9-2.35 or 2.0-2.5 so what's the main issue I'm looking at if I install these?

Pinch flats and maybe a bit of difficulty getting the tyre on I guess... if I get them fitted does anyone see any issues running with these that I may have over looked?

    Most likely issues is keeping the darn things from getting trapped by the bead and puncturing.

    If you inflate it OK, it won't then cause any issues, no reason at all why it should pinch flat!

    Also it would be a bit heavier than the right tube.

    Thanks... never really thought about the weight... maybe loosing a pound myself would compensate :)
