IMO the AD08 and PS2 were fairly similar with the AD08 just edging it out, but i've never driven on the PSS to compare but it should be a lot better than the PS2.

Why not go with a Nitto NT01? I'd probably take a 275 NT01 over a 295 R888/PSS/AD08.
AD08 and PS2 are comparable how? In grip? No way. PS2 has less grip, less road noise. I know you stated in your opinion...but it is a fact that AD08 is supreme to the PS2 in grip!
