Default Anybody Returned Their Brown Letter BF Goodrich T/A's?

This seems to be a common problem lately. BFG T/A lettering turning brown and almost impossible to get white again.
Looks pretty bad on a nice Corvette of any year. I've been running BFG's on all my cars for decades and never had this problem before. I currently have four vehicles, all with BFG tires. But now I have the brown letter problem too. Just on the Corvette with the T/A's. The All-Terrains and Long Trails on my trucks don't show any problem at all with their lettering. All the others seem to be OK. I've heard all the BS about cleaning with this or that and spending 45 minutes per tire to get them white again, no thanks. Usually with every car wash a quick squirt of bleche-white cleans them right up. Not any more. There is definitely a problem with the tires.
BFG has not addressed it on their web site even though most of the reviews people leave all mention this problem with the T/A's.
So I'm not looking for another "tip" on cleaning. I'm wondering if anyone here has had success in returning their T/A's for replacement if BFG has corrected this problem?

Called BFG customer service number, explained my problem and they opened a return claim for me right away. Didn't admit anything but didn't seem surprised either. Very helpful so far.

How old were your tires? Mine are about 4yrs old. They started turning brown about a year after I bought them. I just gave up and scrub them and deal with it. Not very happy about it of course

You have to use bleach white and if does not work call BF Goddrich and they will recommend white paint the same they use to paint lines on my strret and yours. Or call a sign company they have products like white out liquid
