We'll see if they chunk when the weather turns hot. I'm hoping the larger size will help with that (it's .8" wider than the 265).

The AD08R is an old tire and won't have the grip of the RS4. It's also really expensive ($384 for their 265/35/18). Looks like Tire Rack has a lot of older stock in some sizes which probably means it's being phased out in favor of the new AD052.
WTF why did they discontinue the 275 RS4!? I was planning to run these for at least a few sets.
