The Yoko AD08 is more comparable to the Re-11... Remember you're now throwing a extreme performance tire into a group of tires that were more leaned towards luxury/performance. Re-11's are more of a softer compound for the guys who want to run at the track as well. The only comparable one would be the AD08 in which grip levels are around the same, but nothing will compare to the response you get out of the AD08 over the RE-11. The Re-11's feel slower in the bends than the AD08's because of that.

Thanks. I understand that the downside of the AD08 is a bit wet performance, other than that it is also a very capable tyre directly comparable with RE11. Other than that, do you know how is the AD08 behaving at the limit vs the RE11? Does it give feedback when reaching the limit or it just looses traction?

PS. I can't seem to be able to get access to either the RE11 or AD08 here in Greece. If anyone knows a reliable source (preferably also retailing online) in Europe I'd highly appreciate it!!

AD08 does give feedback, but the RE-11 is a little more progressive at the limit, and thus easier to be consistent with. AD08 has a tiny bit more grip.
