I think the only way to make it look good would be to do the whole wheel. Whatever process that would be.

It's called electrolysis.
Two dissimilar metals (actually 3 in this case) connected to each other,add water,a little road salt, and the reaction will eat away at one of the metals.
Boaters fight this by attaching an anode plate to the lower unit on their outboards to prevent the action from damaging the engine.

Clean it up, try to find some touch up paint, and then put some clear on top... All you can do because it looks like it ate through the paint, clear and started into the aluminum.
