Help: Wheel Cleaner Sprayed at the Rotar Disk

I don't know if i did a mistake or not but this picture i attached doesn't look good in my opinion.

i used Wheel (Rim) Cleaner and sprayed it all over the wheel to clean it .. apparently the spray got in contact with the Rotor Disk and it turned out to a yellow colour

1. what shall i do?
2. Would it severely affect the rotor disk ?
3. What about the inner parts of the wheel? Do you guys clean it as well?
4. Any recommendation when i clean the wheel again?

Please help ! :upset::bangdesk:

Looks to me like normal rust from washing the car. Anytime the car gets wet, the rotors rust and look like they have been sitting in a junkyard for 20 years. And it only takes about 20 minutes if that for them to rust like that.

Basically, you're fine, you won't even notice it when you drive!

Its just surface rust... nothing to be worried about and will happen anytime you get the rotors wet. The next time you drive and apply your brakes it'll be gone.

That is probably rust to be honest. Rotors are made of iron, so when they are exposed to water and air, etc etc they will rust. Just drive her around the block and they'll look good as new.

1. what shall i do? Just jump in your car, back up in the driveway and pull back in and you will be good to go.
2. Would it severely affect the rotor disk ? No it will not effect your rotor unless you sprayed a iron remover on it and let it sit which clearly you didn't.
3. What about the inner parts of the wheel? Do you guys clean it as well? Yes I always clean the inside of the wheel. I even wax it to get it some more protection.
4. Any recommendation when i clean the wheel again? Just have fun, you are not going to mess it up unless you get a brillo pad out. Just get a good wheel degreaser/cleaner I recommend Sonax. Then but a nice coat of wax on it. Then get some tufshine for the tire and you will be set.

I worried about this the first time I cleaned my car a few weeks back. I was all ready to take pics and post on here, but I first had to take it to the store. I came back, got the camera, and the rotors looked good as new.
