You can use .11 for standard tuning. Stevie Ray Vaughan used to play on as high as .13 (though he played in Eb). .11 is suitable for downtuning too.

I wouldnt go further than a half step down from E standard. Thats me tho. Buy a set and experiment. They're only $6 dude.

i've gone down to Db with no issues. Any lower and you'll want to go up to 12s or higher

Also depends on your guitar's scale. On 25.5 you can definitely get to D standard or below. On a 24" scale guitar, it won't really go below Eb without feeling funky. I play with 11s on 24" scale, and it feels great in E standard, much like 10s on a 25.5" feel.

Its a 25.5, So I guess D Standard will do (DGCFAD) I currently have it on Drop D (DADGBE) And it sweet as hell. But it seems I will look for thicker strings..
Thank you for your help.

There are a lot of factors to consider when looking into drop tuning, bigger isn't always better. Some strings offer a large core wire which will help off set the drop in tuning with more tension. However it can really depend on playing style and personal preference.

Also I would recommend getting your guitar properly set up (or doing it yourself) when going to a heavier set. The larger/heavier strings will put more tension on the neck and could cause damage if you're not careful.
