Tire blooming?

Is this what you would call tire blooming? From what I've read blooming is caused by the oils in the tire migrating to the surface. I don't think it hurts anything and I've seen browning on tires, but this looked a little odd. Opinions?

Usually that happens on the sidewalls but I don't see why it wouldn't happen on the tread I guess.

Thanks. makes sense. These tires have been in storage so I haven't had the chance to remove the bloom by driving. I'm trying to sell them and wanted to make sure they weren't defective.

Looks like surface oxidation.

Just drive them a little like you said.

Others recommend using tire shine to remove/hide them but I would use 303 protectant. It's not oily or greasy; will just leave a clean look apperance.

sorry, but i wouldn't put any kind of liquid on the tire surface, just drive on them.

on the similar subject, what is the best chemical to use on the sidewalls to clean the brown color? my other car's tire are always brown and i dislike hiding the problem with tire dressing. i'd rather clean them and then a small amount of dressing.

I use 303 for that... but it is slippery as hell. Let it dry for at least a few hours before you drive (even if you just put it on the sidewalls)

To the people above... I would just drive them.
