If brake track life concerns you, think about the hard anodised rims which should give better wear. Best price I have seen on them is AU$94 from Wiggle - let me know if you find a better price.
I very nearly did that, but I have never seen the hard anodised ones in real life and I wasn't sure how it was going to look. The black ones are pretty nice though, and they were $89 each from wiggle. You can get them locally from Craftworx for $89.95, but then you'll get hit with $20 shipping, so they work out more expensive than Wiggle (unless you are in Brisbane and can pick them up!)
