Here we go:

Buy Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings 10-48 | .010 Gauge | Musician's Friend

You could throw a .010 on top and then do a .012-.054 going down. Not sure if it'll be tight enough, but since you mentioned you like the feel of thinner strings, it could be worth a try. I'm curious about these myself.
In theory the should have more tenssion than a same gauged string of daddrio's.

D'Addarios Chromes are tighter than most strings, but they tend to put more wear on frets.

Also, someone posted a thread here about strings with heavy cores, which would result in higher tension.
just checked their site. they even have drop-down tunning(DDT) strings. want to get my hand on that 60 they are using there

XX-Heavy DDT-12 12 16 20 38 52 60
(they also have a 013 to 65)
not quite sure about their gauge size choices there in the set 52 is a bit much.
