Staining red oak stairs to match white oak floor?

With all the crazy cost increases in building our new house, we may end up needing to install red oak stairs, instead of the white oak we want to match the floors. (I already purchased prefinished engineered white oak floor). We can't even seem to get the builder to quote a price for the white oak stair treads...

Short of replacing all 12 treads in the open stair case with white oak after we move in, is there a way to make the stairs look like white oak? I've seen Bona Nordic Seal online...

I'd appreciate any advise!
