electrolysis is good if you have a place to put the rim ... otherwise chemicals like naval jelly or driveway iron rmeover / clr will eat it.. ( phosphoric acid )
once rust is gone.. weld or braze fix any holes or thin spots.
then prime and paint.
some like rusty metal primers and rust control paints by rustoleum and others. can also go for epoxy paints.. some rust control sealers like por15 are good.. and go what others say and use a sealing or ruberizing undercoating.. cold zinc finishes.. etc.. lots of preps.
pitting, once cleaned up and primed and painted shouldn't other a tube. if you weld a patch on and can't grind it good.. do as another poster said.
after paint is cured.. roll some duct tape in and around it... it DOES work.. :)
i found a boot/cut up tube taped to the inside of a rim before..
