Default Rusted looking rim

Is there a way to get a brown rust like coated stock rim back to black? I had to get a new one from a salvage yard and its rusty like. Pic posted

A wire brush to clean the loose rust off and a rattle can of Tremclad.

There isn't any loose rust. Just looks like rust has been painted on (thin). Thinks it's still necessary to use a wire brush?

I agree with ssicarman that a wire brush is needed to remove the rust on the rim. There are circular wire brushes designed for use in electric drills which would prove useful in this instance. The cleaning of the rust needs to get down to the bare metal which is time consuming. A power tool would, of course, reduce the time spent.
