Default rust on front wheel

i think i read a thread about this last year, but here goes.
last month i noticed rust drip stains coming out of the left front wheel
center cap.
dealer said it's no big deal, they pulled the wheel, cleaned and lubed axel nut.
truck went home and sat till this saturday.
the stains are back. it hasn't been driven since it's dealer visit.
any thoughts?

Can't tell from the pic but I had something similar happen with another vehicle. The grease used looked rusty and I found out there was too much there. I cleaned off the excess and it didn't come back.

If you pull the wheel, what does the front hub look like? What does the inside of the wheel mounting hole look like Rusty? If so, a quick cleaning of the area should remove the surface rust and prevent this in the future.

sounds like maddog has got it but another little thing it could be is some of the center caps are backed with a metal ring that keeps tension on the cap, those rings rust and do this but i think it is more what maddog said.

It’s coming from the ring that holds the center cap in place, its dissimilar metals, steel ring vs. an alloy rim.
My 2006 Charger Stock 18’s has done it twice now, they replace all the rims under warranty and it’s back again. The rim actually corrodes around it, if left untreated.
