Pro Comp tire fading to brown

I just got a new set of Pro Comp ATZs about two months ago. I have one tire that is slightly hazed with a brown color. I have tried cleaning it and used a few tire cleaners, I also used tire black but it never goes fully away. Then a short time after the wash it is back to the brown color. Have any of you had this issue or have any ideas what it may be? I haven’t called 4wheel parts yet but that is my plan for tomorrow unless somebody here has the answer.

Thanks

My Procomp M/Ts did the same. It was an ever so slight brown tint. I figured the tires dried out a little and sucked up mud. It never bothered me so I didn't look into it further. Perhaps the rubber compound of a specific lot is more porous than others?

Yea that is the way they look, its just odd that only one of five is doing it.

My duratracs are pretty brown all 4. I know when I first got the tires my front right tire went in a little mud hole and that night only that tire was stained. When all the tires got dirty they started changing colors.
