There's not a whole lot of choices in the 90-90-18 size. Continental Conti Go might be a good option as they are available in a 90-90-18 and a 110-90-18. They've got some high ratings in traction and cornering and average wear ratings which might indicate a softer compound.

I think there are more options if i switch to a 100-90-18 front but would it be to wide to run on the 1.6" rim?

I don't know. The 100-90 is going to about 3/4" of an inch taller than the 90-90. The Continentals appear to be good corning tires (based on reviews) in the sizes you need for your bike and are reasonably priced.

Ill give them a shot, im planning on buying wider rims in a month or two and was thinking of going with the Pirelli Demons, heard anything about them?

Experience: 10+ years

Bike(s):
1972 Aermacchi Sprint SX350
1972 Honda CL175 K5
1978 Kawasaki KE100
1978 Kawasaki KE250
1970 Suzuki TC90






Man, those sound like the same size tires as my CL175, I'd have thought the 350 would be larger? That being said, I have Michelin Gazelles on my little CL, 3.00" and 3.50" front and rear respectively, and they handle very well, I've been able to get my toes on the ground with my feet on the pegs. Yes they are in ancient inch designations, and were kind of hard to find, but they wre pretty cheap and work for what I needed.
