String gauge for tapping when tuned DADG

  1. .35 .55 .75 .95
    G D A D

    These are probably a great set for tapping I guess.
    But I tune dropped D, so would a .95 string be to thin ?
    Or does it only make it easier to tap with your left hand in the low register ?
    Will I sacrifice tone when played fingerstyle ?

    Is this a better set : .40 .60 .80 .100 ?

    Does anyone have any experience in this.

    I play metal so I really dig the rattling tone of a heavy string when played fingerstyle.

    Is there a happy medium ?
