you might need 12's but 13's and 14's are a bit heavy, i know that michael amott uses a set of 13 - 56 strings and he detunes down three whole steps.
For Drop C I recommend .11s or .12s Ernee Ball Power Slinkys are what I use.
For E standard I recomment .9s or .10s I use Ernee Ball Regular Slinkys Coz I will bend way too much if I use 9s.

This, atheists talk about religion more then religious people.

Regular Acoustic strings (.013 to .056) will allow you to tune to B while retaining tension. Phospor-Bronze Strings have a lower K-coefficient ("springiness"), so they come to regular tension at a much lower rate of vibration. Your Truss Rod will probably need to be adjusted. Should be a clockwise turning to compensate for heavier strings. D'Addario Jazz Mediums are the same guage, but they're bright steel and you can tune them higher. Then again, we've already established that I'm crazy.

12's really are sufficient though, and probably cheaper.
