My new(2019 Dated) BFGs have the font in the right picture.I think it’s definitely a BFG manufacturing issue. When I ordered my from TireRack a few years ago, I received tires with different fonts? Bought a set a year later from a local tire dealership for my daughters corvette and had the same problem. Both sets were returned and fonts were matched.
Here’s the two fonts.
I have the same issue with just my rear tires, which are a different size than the front. Not sure if that matters.
It's definitely a manufacturing problem and Coker and other dealers i'm sure know of this defect and should find out what is happening with the tires from BF Goodrich.
It has nothing to do with road dirt or rain or anything else. after sanding and cleaning the white, my car sat in my garage for about 5 days and before I took my car out, it looked like I had never cleaned them. Ever.
Man, I ruined a white vinyl top with that Bleche-White. Stupid kid moveThis is not a new problem, when I worked in automotive 20+ years ago there were several products designed to either bleach the white on the tires or paint the white portion of the tires. They are both still available, one was Bleche-Wit and the other was named White Tire Paint, located next to them on the shelf were the products to paint your tires black.
