Why? I have PS2s now, and have had other cars w/PS2 in the past. Very good tires in wet and dry and fun for autocross or track. But the Neova AD08 should have better turn-in and all around stickier performance. Only drawback compared to PS2 would be in the rain I would think.

AD08s have a harsher ride, which is why they are not the ideal street tire.

The harder ride is ok--my last car was an EVO VIII with a Tein Flex suspension, among many other mods. Drove like a kart and would kill my E90 on track or autocross. The main problem seems to be the loss of grip in the rain with the AD08s compared to the PS2s. If the rain performance was the same, I'd go for the AD08s.
