It might help to have a further away picture and one with the wheel off for better context of what/where we're looking at.

Without better pics, all I can guess is that's possibly a bake pad and the thing sticking up in the first pic could be a pad wear indicator bent out of position.
Please post your vehicle year/model/engine/(n)WD in help topics.

In the second picture (where there is what looks like a pad touching the rim) it looks like the end of the adjusting rod for the toe setting for the rear wheels. Both of my adjusters have about a 1.5 inch gap between the rim and the end of the rod (one rod on each side). I'm running stock rims for a 2005. Took a picture, but don't have a URL to upload from.
