If the sandblasting is done well, there should be NO flecks of rust left in any pits. Assuming that's the case and there are no rust flecks left, I'd recommend priming with two coats of epoxy primer the same day you get them back to prevent any flash rust from appearing. A "bright metal" sandblast leaves the metal in a very raw state and flash rusting can begin right away. Even by touching, moisture from fingerprints can begin the process. If you cannot prime right away, I'd recommend applying some Picklex-20 to protect the metal until such time that you can.

If there ARE rust flecks left, the sandblaster didn't do the job properly and I'd demand the situation be corrected at no additional cost.

 Re: Rust pits on rims in reply to Rod (NH), 09-22-2013 12:16:35  
I agree with all that Rod said. With that said, once in awhile I have to remove rust on a particular spot(spot repair). I may spot blast with a special gun, but sometimes it can leave that black speck in the bottom of the pits. One alternative to remove that is muriatic acid. But you must take all the precautions and protections with it. You don't want to breathe the fumes or get it on your skin or anything else. You also have to neutralize and rinse it properly, and dry it quickly to prevent flash rust. Then it has to be epoxy primed right away. I prefer PPG DPLF epoxy sealer primer.
In your case though, blasting should take care of it if they have a proper industrial sand blaster.
