Looks like some of you recommend using a 606 front with the 908RR rear - that combo better than 908 front and rear?
I ran two sets of 908 rear & 606 front,
mainly because the 606 is cheaper and well recommended here.
But, after many front pinch flats, I switched to the 908 front.
Noticably stiffer sidewalls.
I like it, but it has a different turn-in feel on the dirt.
Seems to require slightly more turn-in effort.
No biggie, just different.
Works fine on the highway, just keep it below about 95....

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
