Discoloration/oxidation issue

I just got a new set of firestone destination A/Ts on my commander and the front right tire only is showing signs of some sort of brown oxidation to it.

Does anyone have any idea why this would happen??? Because it is happening to only one tire it leads me to believe that something is going on with that tire/wheel that shouldn't be happening.

The brown color is natural for tires. It is added by the manufacturer. It is a UV protect-ant that comes out when the tire is in the sun.

Maybe that tire is in the sun more than others or the others have been cleaned more?

It is nothing to worry about.

It is not recommended to use a tire shine product as this will dry out the tire.
