Winter time and wheels

Is there anything a guy can put on his wheels so that the corrosive crap they spray on the road in the winter won't screw them up? The wheels I'll be using this winter most likely have a bit of pitting on them but I'd like to keep it from getting worse, and if I end up running the wheels I have on the truck right now I definitely don't want them getting effed up.

Clearcoat? Powdercoat will help if you have a local coater. I used a sealer on mine and washed them once a week and a little bit of clearcoat still got muffed up. Vehicles down south stay so nice.

I too live in a snow belt. This may sound a little over the top but every time I drive my truck in the snow with the MgCl crap on the roads I bring it home and hand wash the wheels and powerwash the under carriage. After four winters the wheels and truck still look showroom new. It's a PITA but the alternative is a rust bucket.
