It's just crud off the brand new tire sitting there, not moving, dripping down. After a couple of months, once the tire has been washed/rained on several times it will stop. I had that same drip line on my jeep and it doesn't do it any more.
Mike has a billet 2013 and for the SECOND time his hinges are rusting from the inside out. It's because they use a different metal for making the hinges, and being placed directly on to the steel tub causes a chemical reaction. There's a name for it, but I can never remember it. Once we get home from vacation I am going to open a case with Chrysler. The first time they removed his hinges, sandblasted them and repainted. That was when his jeep was about eight months old. Now at sixteen months old it is back again!
My jeep is hydro blue and I can see it is starting to corrode on the hinges the same way. Chrysler and I are gonna have FUN fighting this one out!!!
