Where do those people think the film is coming from? If its on the inside of the wheel only, theres not very many places. Now if its all over the wheels well, underneath the car, the outside of the wheel... then it may be questionable.
Thats what I say, it is definately not brake dust, and its too thick to be brake fluid. It has to be the gear oil. And its only the one wheel that got hit so it definately has to be from the impact of the accident. But like I said I will tear it apart myself and take pictures so that I can take it back and call the insurance company so they can handle it.
