I ended up taking the tires off of my HRE's before selling them so I figured I might as well mount the 305/275 on the FI's and give them a try. I only put one of the rear wheels on to see if it would clear the fender so I haven't driven it with them on yet (still too much snow).
The AD08's have more of a square sidewall and don't have enough stretch on the 10.5'" wheel but I'll give it a shot and see what happens.
When I had the 305 AD08 with the HRE's they provided crazy good grip compared to the stock PSS's I was running, in stock sizes. My only issue with the AD08 is it needs to heat up a bit to get traction, and even summer mornings can be in the 30's up here. Once they heat up they are awesome
