Can you repair diamond cut alloy wheels?

Once water has got behind the lacquer finish of diamond cut wheels, can anything be done to reduce the rate of deterioration ?

Diamond cut alloy wheels only have lacquer on the surface to protect the bare metal, and unfortunately if this protection has failed then the only option is to have the lacquer removed, and the wheel refaced if necessary, before a new layer of lacquer is applied.
