Just purchased a Canon 60D after months of internal debate.

I want to purchase an ultra clear and circular polarizer filter.

I have previously used Tiffen filters on my 35MM cCanon Elan II.

Looks like many people really like the B+W filters over Tiffen.
Prices are about the same. I did read a review that a B+W filter did not fit the 18-135mm thread.
That scared me.

Any recommendations?

that review was incorrect. i think that lens takes a 67mm filter, and any filter that is that size will fit it.
i use b+w filters.

As somebody who constantly went out of their way to find the cheapest and best bang for buck deals on a student budget, and as someone who went "I CAN'T AFFORD EXPENSIVE FILTERS!!!" too many times, I say don't skimp out on filters. Buy the best, or none at all.

Tiffens aren't on the good side.
Ultra clear isn't a particularly reassuring term.

When you buy filters, you buy them in a certain filter thread size which corresponds to the lens filter thread size, 67mm in the case of the 18-135. A filter not fitting is like buying car wheel rims; it has to be of a specific size. Filters certainly aren't a one size fits all deal.

B+W filters are very high quality and manufactured by the Schneider-Kreuznach optics company in Germany. If a lens has a 67mm filter thread with a 0.75 thread pitch then a 67mm B+W filter will screw onto it.
