Default rust stains on my wheels

i recently aquired rust stains on my wheels from the car sitting in the rain. the ruct was on the rotors and when i drove the car it transfereed to the wheels and is now stained on. i havent tried much at this point due to the car being covered in salt but tried searching and couldnt come up with much. the wheels do not have a clear coat which makes it even harder to get off. i was going to try some lemon juice or vinegar this weekend to try and remove it but any help u guys could give me i would appreciate.

Before you use chemicals try using a claybar. It has worked for me to get stubborn stains off my wheels.

Try CLR or some lime away. Test it on the back side first to make sure it won't damage your rims.

claybar, or you could try NOXON as well, that stuff works great on oxidation and rust, lime, calcium etc.
