Bridgestone Dueler letters coming off

I noticed today that the letters appear to be separating from the sidewall. These tires are a year old with 8k miles. I doubt they could be replaced under warranty but may look into it. Has anyone seen this before?

Ha; you’re funny. All four are like that. I may not be the best at parking but I know not to rub the curbs.

The white letter is actual rubber that is under the outer skin of the tire. At manufacturing one of the final stages is to skim off the outer layer of black rubber revealing the white rubber underneath. The most common way the letters are peeled away like that is when they are ran against curbs. They aren't pressed on or anything so the only way to really remove them is to tear them away with force.

If it was only one tire, or even one side, I’d agree that curbs could be causing this. But, it’s all four tires and the “wear” is very even. I’m headed to a Firestone dealer tomorrow to see what they say.
