maybe $30. the hardest, most time consuming was the stripping and prep. (as always).

I found some "rubber friendly" paint/varnish stripper at lowes. not the best i have used but it worked, just took about 2-3 coats. maybe $17-18 for stripper, a pack of steel wool and some scotch bright pads. Pressure washer also helped.
Then 2 cans of regular satin black for all five wheels. did not even prime. set the tire/wheel on a 5 gal bucket upright. 1 light coat from front and back, rotate tire a little on bucket, another light coat, etc, etc, etc.
i did the spare on one afternoon. then did 2 more another, etc.
edit: forgot to say that i used a couple rolls of cheap masking tape and some newspaper paper
