So my question is. How bad are they really in the wet? Are the RE-11 a little better in the wet than the AD08?
The AD08 are perfectly driveable in the wet, but they do not specialize in wet performance. The PSS aims to have excellent wet performance, and accepts a tradeoff of less-than-ultimate (though still very good) dry traction.

RE-11 are a little better in the wet than the AD08, but they are more like the AD08 than they are like the PSS.

For someone who does a lot of rain driving, I'd generally go with the PSS.
