The AD08's have more of a square sidewall and don't have enough stretch on the 10.5'" wheel but I'll give it a shot and see what happens.
When I had the 305 AD08 with the HRE's they provided crazy good grip compared to the stock PSS's I was running, in stock sizes. My only issue with the AD08 is it needs to heat up a bit to get traction, and even summer mornings can be in the 30's up here. Once they heat up they are awesome
The weather here has been wet in mid 40s-50s. My PSS is not holding up on traction. I'm not sure if it's due to wet/cold and having summer tires on.
