rim corrosion

I have a 2002 530i with the expensive, OEM 2 piece rims. The last two winters the road salt has some how gotten into the outer rim and started corroding in spots on all four rims. Has anyone seen something similar? Can I get them remachined to new condition and are there ways to prevent this from recurring? I was thinking maybe having another clearcoat applied. thanks.
