Rusty (?) Rim 2000 M-B C230 Kompressor Sport

I have a 2000 M-B C230 Kompressor with the sport package (different rims, side skirts and interior panels). I keep my car outside and I live in Wisconsin, so there is lots of moisture in the winter. My back right wheel's rim is sort of brownish gold and when I try to rub off the brown/gold material it doesnt really come off. I'm wondering if this is rust? This wheels break pad was completely gone and had to be replaced, that may or may not be related.

So, is this rust? The right side of the car is sometimes kept up against snow.
And, if it is rust, what are some preventative measures or how what should I clean this with? Other M-Bs of this era have some rust issues on the body, but I dont know about the rims.
