I've had a few bikes with gold wheels, i'm going to go for it too. I was meant to be not spending on this one, LOL, but I can't cope with corroded black anymore!

Price - I think £40 - £50 a wheel seems to be ball park, tyres removed and plus new bearings while they're off.
 
Black is probably chosen so they don't look dirty when they are and being such a pain in the arse to clean.

Glad you mentioned that JayB coz I've been buying some "Allow Wheel Cleaning Tissues" from ALDI. They come in a large tubs and you pull each tissue out from the top (like baby-wipes. They are cheap and work AMAZINGLY well!! No matter how mucky or oily, a gentle wipe across the surface has it clean and shiny. Brilliant!

I find chain cleaner on a rag does a good job seeing as most of the grime on mine is from my chain / scott oiler :)
