Default RUST issue with 2010 4x4 Ram Big Horn...anyone else having this issue

I have a 2010 4x4 Ram Big Horn, and I've only had it a couple weeks now. I am noticing after a rain, or after washing the wheels, that rust is coming out through the little chrome ram head hubs that are in the 20 inch rims.

I took the rim off and notice that the wheel hub is rusting around where the axle nut is. For the most part the metal in that area is like machined and very smoot and shinny, but it is starting to rust like any other rotor does. But for whatever reason, the water that gets in there doesn't drain out and it eventually spins out while driving and gets rusty water all over my wheel.

What can I do to prevent this? It happens on all 4 wheels. (4 Wheel disc brakes).

If anyone else is having this issue please tell me what you have done to fix it.
