I painted the rims myself with a little guidance from an online site on "how to" paint your stock rims. I went around and got some quotes from local paint shops and they said $200 so I figured I'd give it a try for only purchasing supplies for about $30.
I went to see your pictures earlier and was rewarded by some sort of program installing itself on my computer and trying to make all sorts of changes to the registry. Probably wouldn't have even known if I didn't have Spybot. Didn't really get a chance to see the pictures. Maybe you could post a few directly on here?
The rims are actually holding up pretty well (suprisingly)... I was afraid of chips too. As of now (driven about 3,000 miles) there are no chips at all and it looks exactly as they did the day I painted them. Just make sure you take your time and put LOTS of coats of paint and clear coat.
