gloss versus photo paper

I have an HP 8035e and am trying to print some pages from a photo book to see what it might look like when the books are actually printed (roughly). The printer will be using 80 pound gloss paper for the book. I assume this is not "photo" paper proper, and I am not trying to print photos proper.

The printer specs say it supports:

"16 to 28 lb (plain paper); 60 to 75 lb (photo); 20 to 24 lb (envelope); 90 to 110 lb (card)"

So, I'm wondering what kind of paper I should buy for my little informal test. What would be closest to 80 pound gloss that would be supported by this printer?

(I also have a Pixma MX492 but kind of hate it).

Thanks!
