OC3 is correct - if you want all out dry grip from a street tire then the RS3 is the way to go. However, the trade off is poor wet weather performance (I know persian54 is not a fan of them in the wet!) and, I believe, they get very noisy on the street after going to the track.

OP based on your stated experience level I'd say start with the AD08, then switch to the RS3, and finally step up to r-comps as you gain track experience and are comfortable trading off wet performance for all out dry performance.
