    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 :)
