With a .008, you probably won't be able to tune the string higher than G and it will sound extremely thin. That's basically the reason that everyone has a low B string instead of a high A. You can kind of get away with it on a nylon string like Lenny Breau did.
If you want a higher tuning, there's always a capo.
