A magnified picture could help someone help you...
Have you ever used any of those "wheel cleaners" that have a sharp acidic smell?
If the protective coating on the wheel is fully intact and you wash all road salt off them at least once a week, road salt shouldn't affect them. Wax helps... but not as much if the protective coating has been chipped, scratched, etc.
