Maybe, follow "joed"s suggestion.
We would run 1/2 inch for the #12's and a 3/4 inch for the #8's and #10.
4 or 5 bends? - 60 feet -
we would probably run all #10's.
Just my humble opinion!
Consider what "joed" said!
(We make suggestions - we don't "engineer")
I haven't pulled them all out, but I have looked at them in all of the joint windows, and they look in perfect shape.

I would be very happy to pull out the #12 ground and share the #10 ground between the two circuits. This would get me very close to code. It seems like this is okay? I always thought 110 and 240 grounds had to be separate, but I'm happy to learn something new.

while you could pull it out, i'd be more worried about damaging the other conductors while doing so. that is of greater concern than the overfill. seriously, just leave the install as is!

There really is plenty of room to pull out wires - not tight at all... but I hear you - seems like either way I'll be fine, as long as the wires are in good shape.
