What type of strings do you recommend if we are looking for some Dire Straits sound?

At the moment Mark Knopfler's using D'addario 010-046's, I'm not sure what he used when he was with Dire Straits though.

My dad works for him so we get loads of free sets of strings, it's awesome. smile.gif

Dire Straits - 4 position on the strat and fingers. strings play very little role, wheter you put 9 or 10.
