Max Rectifier Capacitance

Max Rectifier Capacitance
Hi all,  
I'm looking to use 2x110uf caps (in parallel) on my B+ line right after the rectifier tube. Now, the 5U4 is rated for a maximum capacitance of 40uf, a 5AR4 (GZ34) is rated for around 60uf I believe. So, if I were to run 2x or 3x 5AR4's in parallel would that put less stress on the Rectifier tubes than using just 1 tube??? I'm really confused here, so ANY help would be really great.
