Cheapest would be e-bay, craigslist, or these boards. As for those particular wheels...shop around. Can't just wave the magic wand and make tell you the best price for something. Tirerack.com's got some good deals now and then, but you're still buying new. GODSPEED's got something similar-looking (in that they're five-spoke and silver) in the for-sale forum.

And please, please stop calling them rims.

nope the rim is actually a part of the wheel
rim plus spokes plus hub equals wheel
wheel plus tire equals tire mounted on wheel.

Tire + Rim = Wheel
Wheel - Tire = Rim
Tire + WHEEL = Tire + wheel
Wheel - Tire = Wheel

Rim = very outside edge of wheel, where they clip wheel weights onto wheel.
