Yah my stock pulley had rust too. I can't complain much when half your car is rust too. I sand blasted the whole stock pulley and got it powdercoated black. It looks great! Only problem is that it looks so good that it makes my engine look like ****. On my 2" pulley I sand blasted the grooves and that helped with belt slip A LOT!!

I've got some rust on mine too. I didn't wipe it down good after I swapped it out.

When you say rust in the ribs only? I noticed a slight amount inside, however was not concerned with it.

I'm talking about the outer visible portion, would normally be black.
