What you are seeing is brake pad and rotor dust..the reason you do not see as much on the rear is because over 60% - 70% of a cars braking is done by the front wheels and the they get a much faster and heavier braking..the dust is the evidence...note many times it is how the driver driver stops the vehicle..a slow pumping the brake stopping will not get the build up or very little while a jack rabbit heavy braking driver will get it quickly. I am concerned about the oily part..if you are saying just an oily residue mixed with the dust is ok because it is a hydraulic system and there us cylinder weepingis normal..but heavier oil could mean Front cylinder leaking...and should be checked by a professional..good luck..

Jaguar x type 19" alloy wheel upgrade but rear wheels rub on arch

I really don't think you will be able to use those rims and tires, probably the biggest is going to be 18" wheels. The 8.5" rim is too wide. An 18" came as the stock size on the sport package for the Jag, it's 7.5 wide. I don't think who sold them to you really knew if they would fit or not. Without wheel spaces and raising the suspension, I don't think they'll work on the car.

Saab 95, dirty front wheels (brake fluid?)

Is this oily or a dry dust? I suspect that since it is both wheels, it is caused by 'brake dust' which is just residue from the linings as the brakes wear. The solution is to install ceramic brake pads to eliminate the unsightly problem, however, if this is the problem. it is only visual, it does not affect the performance. Washing the wheels thoroughly, then applying wax to them will make future clean up easier. If the residue is oily or greasy, you probably have issues with an axle seal leaking. In that case it should be checked soon, as wheel bearing failure can result if too much grease is lost.

Had a front end accident in a 2003 mercury sable, minimal body damage but now the front left wheel flops around when attempting to drive - what is a ballpark estimate for fixing wheel.

Depends if it is steel or alloy. Worse case, you could probably pick up a used alloy at a salvage yard for around $50, or a steel wheel for $15-$20.

Alloy wheels pitted and rusing

Hi have a nice day!
I think following article found to be interesting.
Most wheels on the market today feature a painted surface, machine lip or face with a clear finish. To take care of your alloy wheels without damaging the protective finish frequent washing with a quality car wash, such as McGuire's or Polyglaze, and water is highly recommended.
Periodic use of a bug and stain remover can prevent permanent damage, whilst waxing will protect the alloy wheel finish from the elements. NEVER use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or polishing compounds. ALWAY's be wary of automatic car washes. SOME use acidic cleaners to remove dirt and grime. Others may use stiff brushes for cleaning alloy wheels and tyres. BOTH of these WILL HARM your Wheels So always ask about equipment and procedures before entering the car wash.
Never allow your alloy wheels or tyres to be STEAM cleaned. Hot steam can dull the paint or clear coat finish on your alloy wheels. NEVER clean HOT Wheels always wait until they cool down. Water on your alloy wheels will dry faster on a hot surface and cause your cleaning solution to dry to quickly leaving spots or a film of soap on your wheels.
Cleaning wheels in direct sunlight also causes the wheel to dry out to quickly, leaving spot's in the finish. This is a particular problem with chrome wheels, and machined faced alloy wheels. Clean your wheels on a regular basis, they are often the dirtiest part of your vehicle and they're constantly exposed to the elements, corrosive brake dust, ocean and sea salt plus the inevitable road tar.
Disc brake dust is a BIG problem. If not REMOVED it can actually burn small marks into the chrome or alloy wheels, which in turn if left untreated can lead to PITTING of your alloy or chrome wheels. Chrome plated wheels are particularly susceptible if left untreated SO please make sure care is taken. Clear coating on your machine lip of face alloy wheels can suffer a similar fate if left untreated.
If you do not clean Chrome Wheels or Alloy Wheels regularly moisture, which harboured in brake dust and grime, can lead to SEVERE pitting and rusting of chrome wheel surfaces.
TAKE "PROPER" care otherwise your warranty on your Alloy wheels or Chrome Wheels could be voided.
