Ted, I have 6 on my 1996 DutchStar 35ft and fine them to be just fine. I bought two and run a test for six months on the front. Handle and wear was just great. I then went to the other four and I'm very happy so far.
Hope this helps.

I have had a set of 4 on my wife's ar now fro about 3 years and not a problem. It is not the same as a MoHo, but her car is running the 50 series performance tire and they are doing great on wear and traction.

You might want to use the Equal powder instead of spin-balancing. That way you won't ever have to balance them again for the life of the tire.

So I hear a lot lately about this 'equal' tire balancing, what exactly is it and how does it work? What are the disavantages of it if any? Are there tire size limits? I mentioned it to a truck driver and he looked at me like I was crazy?
