If you see rust on the bead of an aloy wheel it is more than likely surface deposits. Clean them well and make sure the clear is OK.

Wire brush the bead area and have the tires installed with rubber cement on the bead to seal any leaks. The cement is slippery so there is no need for soap mixture on the tire to install.
