Im sorry the black part holding your wheel and rotor together, are you talking about the hub?? paint thinner wont make metal rust, just be carful not to touch anything painted that you dont want to come off.

damn that's just sloppy work man...sorry to point out the obvious. if you don't want to deal with thinner, just repaint the hubs black dude.

Remove the rotor and use extra strength paint stripper from home depot (removes even Brembo caliper paint in 10 min) or sand it down. Paint it again.
