If the width fits you'd be better off with 285/30/18 which is .9 Inch smaller in diameter.
285/35/18 is gonna rub for sure.
The tire you choose will be suited for the climate you drive in most.
I considered the R888 when I was looking for better rubber, but the roads here are wet 1/3rd of the time (or that's what it feels like anyway) and I want to be a hooligan on the road whenever I feel like it. The PSS tire fits that purpose nicely for me since it is very predictable in dry and wet conditions and has lots of grip. I don't like tiptoeing around when the roads are wet. But you can't compare it's performance on a dry surface to a semi-slick like the R888 aether.
If you live in Arizona, SoCal or similar climate go with the R888 for sure. "
