Have you gone metal to metal on the pads/ rotors? Or have full metallic pads? Looks like rust from iron/steel dust to me.

Wow man ur better than my mechanic! U could tell from a pic while he had to remove wheels to tell. Ya the pads and rotors are all worn so I left it at the mechanic shop he will fix the rotors and pads for all 4 wheels for $450.
So what do u think I should use? Please tell me a way I can remove it, the car looks great except those rims.

Oh ya and the front rims are perfect for some reason it's only the back ones so I don't think it's rust. Also I was able to remove some of it with paint thinner so it shouldn't be rust

Thank u everyone. Turns out that yellow stuff was router dust. Took it to a detailed who sprayed acid on them and then pressure washed it off. So now they look good again.

Again thank you for all your help
