First job should be to treat the rust. Have you got a photo of the part that has come adrift?

I concur! A quick wire brush down, then vacuum, then a coat of Kurist to turn all that rust into a nice neutral black colour...

... and then some sturdy foam around the outside of the tyre, e.g. copper pipe insulation tubes from B&Q
