    i suggest having them painted or powder coated that would be cheaper than buying new rims

    It looks like the pre cleaning was bad before the plating or electrolosis job was done. I would take them to who the original supplier was.

    i would check with the manufacter of the rim and call them and tell them they might do something for you or a possible recall on the finish and before i'd powder coat i would price getting that rim dipped...around here its not all that much

    depending on where you live that could also be salt eating through the finish directly through to the alloy metal. also but it should have been finished a little better than that too though , I agree with the others, you may want to find out who the manufacturer is and see if they can help you any. If it is left in your hands still i would polish the rim down to the pits and be sure to use Navel Jelly on the pits, that will keep them from rusting any more. then besure they are sealed well before you have them dipped or coated.
