Hi Done,
Tires were more likely a Bridgestone product originally. I had a set of 404's on my 81H and would describe them as suitable for moderate riding. wear was reasonable for the price. Many have used Bridgestone Spitfire I found that to be a better tire.

I used 3M pads (auto body) on my wheels followed by Rouge compound to get a very bright shiny result on the highlights. Brush and detergent on the painted parts. Lots of elbow grease
