I had Bridgestones om ,mine for a while and loved them. I only went to Avons to see if I would get better wear, and,,, just to try them.
Being a,,, larger rider, it sounds like maybe your tyre pressures are too low. I run 36lb as a 91kg rider. I would think at less 38lb pressure for you, if not a tad more. I loaded my bike up and put up 2 1/2 thousand miles on her, but did not up the pressure enough. The rear tyre cupped big time. No problems now, since I up the pressure when loaded. 2 thousand miles around Tasmania at Xmas and no problems with unusual wear, with 44lb in the rear tyre, 38lb in the front.
