Yeah I want to know too. I'm tired of having black brake dust all over my chrome wheels 1 day after a $40 car wash. I'm ready for black wheels. Or is there someone in the bay area who I can take my chrome wheels to be painted black?

It depends on what you think is a good price. Also, my taste in rims might not be to your liking. I did a google search for rims/wheels and looked at the different styles. However, the really good brands are very expensive.

Have your brake pads replaced with some ceramic, low-dust pads. Try the Hawk pads, for example. The Tire Rack sells them for the X3. I just put them on my Z06, which had a terrible dust problem, and now the wheels are nearly dust free. Braking was unaffected, even on the Z06.
