Be careful with any type of silicone or other spray that is slippery around your brake pads. Your best bet, if you can manage it. Is to spray a rag away from the car, then wipe it on the inside of the rim or whatever you want to apply it on. At the beginning of the winter season I spray a rag with silicone spray and wipe down all the rubber door and trunk weatherstripping. Helps prevent the doors from freezing shut.
I've never done it to the inside of the rims though. I have had snow pack in the rims during bad storms and throw the balance off. I usually go to car wash that has a wand and us that to clean out the snow.
