Again you need to be specific on the wheels... dick cepek what? Are they chrome? Powdercoated black?
I shredded one of my winter tires last year and had to run my chrome 22's for a few weeks. Drove through a few storms and slushy conditions... I hosed off my wheels after every trip and applied tons of wax/sealant before I put them on. I still had some minor pitting in the hard to reach areas.
If they're chrome or aluminum wheels they're gonna get messed up if you leave 'em on all winter. Guaranteed. Short of washing the wheels with soap and warm water after every trip (don't let it sit overnight) there's no way to really protect them. At least nothing that I've seen work in the real world.
