You can do the edge of the rims yourself. Suzuki for whatever reason powdercoats the centers but paints the rims. Use some aircraft stripper carefully to remove the paint, then some 000 steel wool or brillo pads to smooth, and then some mothers or equal aluminum polish.

Takes some time and elbow grease but cheap.

Also, if you coat with some wax it keeps the water spots down and grease doesn't stick as easy.

Ends up looking like this:
