That's probably the clear coat that is coming off. If your handy, You would need to strip the clear coat off with polish the wheels so they are smooth. Then primer, and repaint using a silver paint to match the OEM color using a couple coats and then a couple coats of clear coat. Of course you can find a local wheel shop to do the same, but most times, the cost is similar to picking up new rims.
