Use the strings that are most comfortable for you, experiment with different strings and you will find a set that gives you the ‘tone’ you seek, heavier strings will beef up the tone some but if you aren’t playing clean then all the ‘tone’ in the world isn’t gonna make you sound good, also after awhile whith lighter strings as your hands get stronger work your way up to heavier strings incrementally (if it turns out that is the only way to get the tone you are seeking).
