    It depends on where the rattle is coming from.

    Heavier gauge strings will tighten up the tension. It should help.

    I understand that. But what frets? If the strings are rattling on the lower frets, you probably need a touch more relief, thus a slight loosening of the truss.

    If it they are rattling up high, just raise the saddles a bit and you are good.
