Ok I usually play Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms because I tune down a lot. However the Ernie Balls just don't last long enough and I don't have a high enough budget to buy Elixirs. What do you recommend for Metal/Thrash that will last a long time and won't cost me a fortune?
Ask in your local guitar store, they'll know what the score is.

Ibanez RGR08LTD BK

EHX Metal Muff
Boss MT-2
GLX EQ-100
Marshall VS15

GHS Boomers. 10's or 11's. Or you could go with the Zakk Wylde Customs.

Would I have to adjust the truss rod if I were to put on the Zakk Wylde customs? Because they are extremely thick.

Most likely. Depends on how strong the wood on your neck is.

The neck is made of bolt-on maple. Do you think I would have to?
Probably. But a lot of times Zakk's strings don't even fit into the tuning pegs properly so I would go with the GHS 11's.
