From everything that I've read, the ballasts for PC are designed for a max of 2 bulbs each. Maybe I missed something, but I would suggest that you get two ballasts, one for each set of bulbs.

AHsupply uses the Fulham workhorse line of ballasts exclusively. At least they did when I ordered from them. IIRC, a workhorse 3 is good for a single 55pc, a 5 does 2x55 or 1x96 and a 7 does 2x96. Google on Fulham ballasts they're quite popular so lots of electrical suppliers carry them.
