Default Which retracts for my new plane?

As I am building my 1/6 pica T28, I have begun thinking about the retract installation and have pretty much decided on the robart 606HD (85 degrees) with 607 nose gear. I read here once before that if your wing has dihedral in in (mine does), the 85 degree retracts work better than the 90. Can anyone confirm? I also noticed that main gear wire is 3/16", while the nose gear is 5/32". Is this ok for them to be diferent? Are there other retracts that I should consider? I should mention my plane will probably weigh ~7-8lbs.
