Thanks (everyone) for the replies, blasting and cold galvanising is what I had in mind, it seems uncomplicated work that I can do myself and cheap to do.
I find that cold galvanising, while an OK stopgap, doesn't work all that well. Stuff doesn't make great contact to the steel, and doesn't adhere all that well. Why not see if, after you get them cleaned up, you can have a shop galvanise the wheels for you (either your existing wheels or replacements), assuming there isn't some kind of government prohibition on it, of course. Shouldn't be all that much to have done, I'd think.
