No trick to tuning, no brand with specific tuning characteristics. The only way to make tuning easier is to block your trem, but like you said, you lose the tremolo's functionality. Take a look at the tremel-no on Youtube.

Er... different brands of strings won't make tuning a trem system any easier or harder. Tuning a trem system is a pain no matter what strings you use. Once you get the spring to string gauge ratio right, it isn't that hard.. but you need to get that right before you'll be able to get in tune.

For example, if you have only two springs in your trem, and are using heavy (.12) guage strings, the trem will not be able to get in tune because the strings will overpower the springs pulling back on them, and leave you with an uneven trem that is very far forward. If you have this problem you need more springs or thinner gauge strings.. Hope this helps.. and good luck.

IMO, Ernie Balls aren't particularly good strings. I find that they oxidise extremely quickly. You can get things like rotosound for the same price which are marginally better.
