    Vague isn't the word lol.
    Take a pic and post it m8
    Is it around the brake disc on the outside ur on about?
    Or the wheel?
    Iron out is for metal filings and contaminates, not for derusting

    i did try my best! it is the little drum between the brake disc and the inisde of the alloy wheel - usually they get quite bad surface rust.

    will get a picture and upload it

    I might be wrong but I'm sure u can rub it down with sandpaper/ wire brush and paint it.
    I'd be carefull and mask off threads etc before doing it tho
