I've been using the Koolstop salmons for a few months and didn't find them any superior to stock Shimano pads. As to whether they are easier on the rims -- no idea, could well be. Anyway if you're not doing downhill in the rain for thousands of miles on end, most (alu) rims should be good for many years.

On first wheelset there was some oil... bad breaking for all kind brakepads
Other one has Shimano (ultegra 6700) and breaking is awsome. Also wheelset - very fast,comfortable,stiff and they have "sound" (16 cxray front, 24 cx ray rear)

Will try KoolStop when we get them. Thanks for information
