Are the DR Dimebag heavey strings ideal for drop C tuning, or should I go with a heavier guage? The guages are 11-14-18-28-38-50.

I thought heavier guage stings were best for drop tunings, due to better tone and string tension.

They are. Those should work great, I use DRs, lighter gauge though.... I think 9-50 rite now... I go down to D often and things a just a tad bit looser then I'd like but it doesnt bother me, so those should be good.

And I'm sure your strings are extremely loose and flabby.

But yes, that string guage would be what I would choose for drop C tuning.
It's GANDHI not GHANDI

you can go heavier if you want to man. i tune to dropped-B and i'm using .13 - .59, it works great for me cause i like a deeper, warmer tone. but then again, i'm playing a baritone (esp ltd viper vb-400).

I use that exact same string and gauge. They are good for it.
Be cool.
