Could be wrong but sounds like what he's saying is the rubber seal that may hold the grease in is gone, therefore, it will not hold grease but the arrow is pointed to the tire and rim. Possibly just needs seated and air.

The gooey substance between the tire and rim may be fix a flat or some slime that was put in the tire to prevent or fix s leak. Where the arrow is pointed is the bead where the tire seats to. If that's what you mean by seal, it sounds like the tire and rim seperate a due to a flat and needs air.

Sorry, I miss read. That tire is a tube tire, it has a two part rim. Most likely thats just water between the rim and the tire that turned black. If the tire holds air, there isn't a problem.

Well all he did was put some greeae around where the tire touches the rim, compressed the tire with a ractchet strap around the rim, and then aired it up with an ait compressor, was really easy to do
