Your problem with flats isn't likely to be solved with new wheels. First, what is causing the flats and where on the tube are they located? If they are on the inside wall of the tube, check your rim strips to see if they have moved or are broken. If so, the spoke nipple heads or spoke hole edges may be rubbing against the tube and causing the flats. New rim strips may end (or reduce) the problem.
