Bridgestone was a good brand back in the 80's and 90's. Just run them as long as you can amd inspect them periodically. You might be surprised as to how long they'll last. ;)

Bstone is a huge, global company, makes millions of car and motorcycle tires and a bunch of other stuff. They imported bikes to the U.S. through the early '90s, I think. Grant Petersen, who founded and runs Rivendell, used to be their product manager or some title like that--he designed most of the bikes, in any case.
THey still make bikes in Japan, and I'm pretty sure they still have bike tires, too. But they were never a huge power in the U.S.--Grant designed sensible, usable bikes and didn't do the "racer look" when everybody else did, and that was all anybody would buy. Can't remember when they pulled out (1994?). but I was sorry to see them go. My wife and I still have a Bstone 550 roadie and two mountain bikes, and they're still a pleasure to ride. That's the main reason I wound up buying my last two bikes from Rivendell. .
