Yo. Even though I've been playing guitar for 3 years I still have questions about thicker gauge strings. I usually use 10 gauge strings. Recently I got some 11s put 'em on and Loved them. I tried drop C tuning with them but the strings were still really loose. I'm starting to get into stuff with Drop C as the standard tuning like Breaking Benjamin. What Gauge of strings would be suitable for this low tuning 12 13? I'm not sure. And would I have to make any modifications to the guitar itself to allow the thicker strings to fit?

Thanks guys.
I've used 10-52's for Drop C and it was just fine for me....... I guess it's all subjective though.

Perhaps try 12-54 or 12-56?

You wouldn't have to make any modifications to the guitar, but it would be in your best interest to get it set up for use with those strings.

Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms, or whatever the brand you buy calls them

I've heard they work very well for Drop C/D.
