brake cleaner to clean the inside of rim, i would go with red or black on calipers. and a steel brush would take off the rust, just make sure to use a solvent to prevent future rust

Are you talking about the brake rotor, caliper, or the wheel itself?? I don't see any wheel rust from the picture...

Remove wheel, caliper and bracket, and slide off rotor. Clean all rusty areas with a wire brush or course sandpaper. Use a rust converter if you choose. Clean the area you just sanded with brake cleaner to remove any dirt.
Use Duplicolor or VHT high temp black paint, or VHT Epoxycoat, and spray both the inner hat and outer rim of the rotor. Don't worry about overspray on the rotor, the brake pads will take care of that later. Do about 3 coats, allowing for the reccommended drying time between each one. Once it is completely dry, reinstall on the car. As you drive, the brake pads will remove any overspray, and you will be left with a nice looking rotor thats black instead of rusty.
