I agree, the 606 is the best one I've used yet for street/trail use. I am currently running a Chen Shin 755 5.3x18 "cheap" because I'm doing mostly off road right now. When I do some dual sports I'll go back to the 606. I used a 120/90/18. As far as I know that's the largest 18" size you can get. Rocky Mountain ATV has the best price I've found yet.
