Agree with rgreen45. Differences in wear are probably more significant than the original very slight difference in the (new) size, and the wear difference is probably insignificant as well. Still, I would put two identical tires on the same end of an axle whenever possible. The dual pair operates as one single tire, so anything you can do to make them roll exactly the same is a good idea.

In your opinion the mixing of the two types of tires is no big deal. We have to buy 4 for the rear of our Monaco so if the fronts are one type and the backs are a different type it should not make a big difference?

I have 2 different kinds , front and rear on mine for the last 6 years, no problems. I worked heavy freeway bridge construction for 37 years and work trucks have all kinds of different tires on every vehicle and they all drive fine going down the road.
