Pic request. 18" TE37SL w/ AD08 tires

Hi, I see lots and lots of cars with 18" TE37SL / 265/285 Hankook RS3 wheel,tire combo. I want to run AD08 tires due to their stiffer side wall when compared to RS3. I cant find pics with this combo. Specifically, I am looking at running:

TE37SL
18x9.5 +22
18x10.5 +20

AD08
265/35/18
295/30/18
Track alignment, stock suspension

Please post some pics and what you guys think?
Thanks

Two sources told me that 295/30/18 should work. Note it is 30, not 35.

Should work, yes, but I wouldn't rule out 0 chance of rubbing.

the +20 offset quite aggressive

RS3s will handle better in the dry, but won't last as long. Ad08s will be better in the wet/cold

AD08 in 295/35/18 will definitely rub in the rear.
