I use a IRC 140/80x18 on a 07 WR450. You should be able to run the same.

Note that stevethe has a WR and an 18" rim. Why do you want the widest tire?

Irc M5b has one of the best hook ups especially for tough trails or hard hill climbs. The knobs are tall and spaced father apart for soft terrain. They are not one of the longest lasting however.

They do make a 19" M5b however it is either a 120 or 130 more of what you might be looking for.
