Ok, so it's just on the wheel "hubs"-where the wheels bolt to the brake rotor. Maybe it's just not noticeable with the stock wheels, but with the open design of my aftermarket wheels, you can see ugly rust on the edge of the rotor and the hub surface too. Never noticed this on other cars before, anyone else see this on their Odys?
BTW, I took off the wheels and carefully sanded a little and painted with black hi-temp paint. Looks 100% better!

Yup, I've got the same problem - on the rear disks. It's not too bad since it appears to be a drip from the face. I guess that part didn't get treated. It's not bothering me at the momont, but if it gets really bad, then I'll have to paint them. What's worse is that I know of a guy with an '01 Ody and his rear drums are ORANGE! Obviouly his were never coated with anything. Eww.

That is normal. All vehicles develop rust and scale on their rotors because they are cast iron. Some will show signs sooner than others because of climate. In Western PA rotors rust quickly... As long as the braking surface is smooth and clean, there is nothing to worry about except for it being unsightly.
