Older Magnum Motor Oil Recommendation

Hi everyone,
My first post here. My 2006 Magnum is getting a bit old. It has 220,000 miles. It runs great but when I stop at a traffic light and the engine is idling, the oil pressure warning light flashes off and on. I figure my rings are getting worn but not yet ready to rebuild. It could also be the oil pump not working as well as it did.
I am still using 5W20 motor oil, but have gone to Mobil 1 synthetic for high mileage vehicles. Should I change the oil weight to help keep the pressure up, add one of the oil additives and just go until I am ready for the rebuild?
Thanks for any recommendations.
