Do you think that between 8-11 years TIS is good? In your experience or opinion, what would be considered that "prime" time to do it?

Once you meet the criteria for whatever technical warrant MOS you are shooting for, go for it. Worse case, they say no; then you try again. It will take a few months to get your packet together, LORs, FedREC and all that. If the position requires a clearance and you don't have it. Start working on that. It takes time, but it is worth every bit of it.

The WO train keeps moving. The longer you wait to jump on it the further back your kicking the can down the road.

They say that your career starts once you pin on the dot. Meaning that it doesn’t matter if you’re an E-5 with six years or an E-8 with 17 years in. When you ascend, you are all WO1s.

Submit a packet as soon as you are ready mentally if your going for technical field. I was 8 1/2 years and an E7 when I dropped mine. It isn't so much timing as qualifications. Have good ER's and PT scores.
