Brake Rust!

I know like every car gets it but how do you get rid of the rust behind the wheel on the brake?!

When you say behind the wheel ... do you mean the rotor, the caliper, or both? Either way, I don't know that the stuff linked above is what you're looking for. That's to put on the wheel itself and protect it from brake dust.

I think he's talking about the rust on the hub of the rotor. Not on the braking surface but the part that touches the inside of the wheel hub.

Could be ... If that's the case your only option is to paint it before it rusts, but that would be a huge pita with having to tape off the rotor.

I just had the edge of the rotor, caliber and wheel hub painted flat back for $60 and they did a perfect job and it looks way better then looking at them rusting

Can you take a pic so we know what you're talking about?

I had mine painted because I hated the rust and this is what it looks like now.

Re: Brake Rust!

Paint it with foam brushes and Q-tips. Spray paint in a container, then brush on with foam brush. No need to tape. That's how I did mine and calipers. Just remember to sand and clean.

Honestly, I wouldn't be concerned with the rust when you've got all that curb rash on your rims. That looks much worse than the rust.

Just saw your post about new rims. Just paint them before you put the rims on. Paint the entire rotor and the brakes will get rid I the overspray.

Lol only $60 and they did an amazing job. They did the caliper, the wheel hub, & the edge of the rotor. It was a great price and all worth it. It matches perfectly with my rims.

Is rotor rust still a problem on late models? My '07 rotors rusted like cold rolled steel and slung that brown crap all over the inside of my chrome Bullitts and inner sidewalls. If they are still bad to rust, is there a stainless alternative, and if so, are they pricey?

Nothing compared to my 05, the rotors would rust over night on it from the dew in the air. I've never seen rust on my 12 even after driving it in the rain.

It's a Ford guys. All Ford vehicles have rust in a lot of places. They circled the problem. Lol I live in a great environment as far as rust is concerned.

Wow I'm painting my rotors and hub too. That looks so much better. I'm also painting my rear axle housing. I don't even live near water and there's rust.

+1 every time I wash the car and the water dries on the rotors they look rusted.

The rotors will naturally get some rust on them when water hits, but it goes away the first time you step on the brake while moving.

Noooope. Just the part that touches the brake pads. The rest stays ugly and rusted.

That should be pretty much the entire surface of the rotor. If it bothers you, paint the other parts. All steel rotors do this.

That pic looks very familiar. My '07 rotors rusted like that, but my main concern is the rusty water that comes from the cooling fin area around the outer circumfrence, when it rains or when the car is washed. When it rained or I washed the car, of course water would get in the rotor fin areas. Then driving it, the brown rust is washed out of the rotors, which coats the inside of the wheels and flows onto the inner sidewalls of the tires, front and rear. When the sun shined on the side of the car (mornings or afternoons), the wheels looked like I had installed rust colored brake dust covers. Nasty looking.

Just wondering if later model rotors are any better than the 05-09 and if not, is there an alternative to painting. I tried to paint the inside cooling fin area and the outer circumfrence of the rotors, with a (Rustoleum type) heat resistent paint, but the rust still flowed when the rotors got wet.

Yea that's the part I'm talking about, the whole face of it, maybe disclosing that small section at the middle of the rotor that doesn't get touched, but I never see rust on it.

You can take them off get them sand or bead blasted then paint them with the paint the blasting is the only way to get that rust out of the vented area in the middle
