Alloy wheels and salt

I just put a set of new black pro comp alloy wheels on my TJ. I live in New England (road salt capital). Is the salt this winter going to ruin my new wheels? If so what can I do to protect them, the roads are starting to be heavily salted up here and I'm starting to worry. Should I not worry about it or should I take action!!

usually the aftermarket wheels are don't do well with salt, that's why people put there stock wheels back on for the winter. I always put the stockers back on and for the folks that don't usually have a corrosion problem. If you don't have some then you probably want to wash them everyother day.

Keep a coat of wax or better a paint sealant on them and do your best to keep them clean... That'll help, otherwise, go back to the stockers or some cheap steelies for winter driving....
