Recently I decided to change my string gauge from the usual 9's or 10's that I'd buy I decided to up my gauge to 11's and currently using the power slinkys 11-48.
Decided to cause I use a 2mm pick and had difficulty to pick fast on thin strings.

Do I need to do something to help stable the tuning? Guy in music shop said going up to 11-48s wasn't going to affect anything.

Another thing is I generally tune to Eb standard since I be learning a lot of gnr and generally like the tuning now I've played it more.

Could dropping the tuning even slight like Eb be the reason?

Depends really, did you restring correctly? Does your guitar have an FR? Have your strings stretched in?

Yeh I've strung it correctly.
No its a epi les Paul custom. I've had tuning issues since I put them on and now they at point where they need changing, well I think I'm at point where I'm pushing my luck every time I play but I don't know whether to get another set of 11's I'm just hoping my current strings don't snap

My bad I actually bought Rotosound reds. Just found the pack. Thought i bought slinkys because that's usually the brand I go for, well I alternate between them and Rotosound as they similar price

Is it a particular string that's going out of tune or all of them? When you say that you strung correctly, did you use the locking method?

If the strings are stetched and you have them on properly it's probably time for some new tuners. My old Epiphone stopped holding a tune after a while, tuners were the culprit. They are pretty cheap and easy to change.

Very unlikely to be the case. If there actually is something wrong with the guitar, the nut is usually the problem.

Might also be the nut. You might want to try lubricating it just in case the strings are catching.

+1 put some graphite/pencil shavings on the nut slots.

Also u may need to adjust the truss rod going from 9's to 11's. your action must be higher...

However likely you think it is, it was actually the case on my actual guitar in actual life. Just saying.

Machine heads on modern guitars are a lot better than they used to be, bad machine heads on those guitars are rare.

This would be my guess. Since you've gone to thicker strings than came stock on that guitar, the nut slots may be too narrow, and the strings are binding or hanging up. Try lubricating them as other posters have mentioned. If you still have trouble you may need to file out the nut slots. It wouldn't take much.
