The Pirellis and Bridgestones are both quite soft and "grippy" tyres. If the handling is fine and the VDC isn't stepping in, I guess it's ok.
Despite that, I had bad experiences with using different makes. On the Nissan 350Z that came with Bridgestone Potenzas I changed the rear tyres to Vredestein Ultrac. The handling was cleary compromised by that - the rear felt very loose.
Obviously I didn't learn from that and put Kumhos on the rear of my 159 - front: Pirelli PZero Nero. I didn't feel any problems with the handling, but on the Nürburgring in a depression the tail thought, that the front wasn't going fast enough and therefore decided to overtake - which ended fatal for both front and tail.
But, to be honest, I'm not convinced, that the reason for that was only a difference in grip of the two tyre makes. A sudden puncture in one of the rear tyres is more likely, I think.
