You could try repainting them. If you prep them right they will come out very nice.

yeah they're about 1 month old and it's been raining recently and now they both have rust (brake rotors)
1-start car
2-accelerate
3-brake like mad
4-accelerate
5-brake like mad
and so on...

Rust will go in no time, that way, until you park for more than an hour... Totally normal for them to rust on the surface, btw...

As goes rust on your wheels, you can use that rust converter stuff. You can get them at most local hardare or automotive stores. To prevent future rusting, you can use WD-40 on the unpainted surfaces, then paint them.

Do not, however, use anything on your rotors. Rotor rust is pretty much a climate thing. It won't affect performance as long as you don't try to use anything on it.
