There's a way to fill with faces only the area between the larger circle and the the smaller one? I mean.. It's a wheel and I'm trying to fill the rubber part of it.

Using the fill function F it fills everything inside the bigger circle.

    $\begingroup$ I don't think is possible to create an unique n-gon capable of filling those boundaries. You should at least make two regions. Would this in your case be suitable or you are looking for a one-face solution? $\endgroup$ – Carlo Feb 5 '16 at 2:57

    $\begingroup$ Here's a link to the Blender for dummies 3rd edition book's page about n-gon limitations where it is said that such feature "is not currently supported" referring to the 2015 versions of Blender. $\endgroup$ – Carlo Feb 5 '16 at 3:30

If both circles have the same number of vertices you can use the Bridge Edge Loops (from the menu Mesh > Edge > Bridge Edge Loops)

enter image description here

It will not fill as an NGon, that is generally not desirable anyway, instead creating an even quad-based topology.
