The greasy wheel pic was on Feb 17th - two days after I first noticed it. So whatever happened, did so about 10 days ago.
Posting up pics in a second...I can't see a tear, nor any grease visible...but it has been 10 days of snowy, wet weather...

Badnit..I've no idea what you are looking at.

That axle new on their website with my zipcode is $89 and reman (which is just as good) is $79

Then... let'* talk about the Napa feeling. Flash a AAA card at them and they take off about 10%.

I'm not understanding how the grease from a torn boot would get all over the outside of the wheel. It'* even around the center of the wheel & lug nuts?

Tracy:
You may have hit an oil deposit in the slush or snow. Clean the wheel at a DIY car wash stall and see if the condition reappears.

You may not have a problem. At least you noticed the condition and asked for advise. That puts you ahead of 95% of all car owners.

I am not an expert but I do not see any grease or oil in any of the pics. You may have picked up some road debris.

I do see a lot of salt and feel sorry for cars that have to be driven in the snow/ice.

Ok..this is an easy fix.

Soap and water!

This isn't a mechanical issue.. please move to General :P

Could it be coming from the wheel bearings?
