Pirelli front/Metzler Rear - dual sport tires

Hey folks,
The second half of this year, I will be doing an off-road training class and planning a trip to Labrador City (NYC -> Labrador). I am looking for a good combination of tire life and also mix road surfaces. I have spent numerous of hours reading and researching posts in the forum and have narrowed down to the following:

Front: Pirelli MT-60 (stock size, 120/70-17)
Rear: Metzler Tourance (non-stock size, 150/70-70)

I have a rear hugger, see link and wondering if anyone has fit Metzler Tourances or an equivalant size rear tire with this hugger.

Thanks!

From my research, I am pretty positive they are tubeless.

I've run the Pirelli Scorpion Trail in the 150/70 (bigger circumference than the 160/60) with my hugger and it fits a lot tighter than that one does. More like a subfender!
