    I just broke the g string of my DR SS LO-Riders, I don't know why it happened but it snapped at the bridge. Anyways, I was looking for a warmer string so it's not a big problem. I also like high tension strings so there isn't any string noise. Which would be better for this (I don't want to break a string again)?

    its been awhile since i used lo-riders but i know eb slinkys have a noticeable higher tension feel and a flatter frequency response and more balanced mids. lo-riders are perhaps a little mid scopped and darker sounding if i remember right. ps i used to use lo-rider nickels a lot and those were warmer sounding but i stopped using them because they also sounded dull to me and lacked sweetness i guess you could say.
