If the bike budget will be tight for some time, make do with the wheels you have. If you are certain that you must have alloy rims, Then replace the rims only to use the same $poke$. A little pitting discovered with a magnifying glass is insignificant in my experience. As a warm up to building wheels, try backing off your spokes and ret-ensioning. And if you haven't already, put a drop of liquid wrench at each spoke/nipple where the spoke enters and from inside the rim.
