Buy a $1 can of black spray paint. Clean the hubs with a green scrubby, let it dry. Spray away. Do your rotor hats while you're at it.

I can understand the OPs point about it not being a race car. Anyway, I did the black spraypaint hub deal with my ce28s.

I think any aftermarket caps should fit ... the ones I got with my TE37's (gold cone shaped things with a blue center bit, pretty lurid) also fit the other wheels (TE37 knockoffs, brand unknown).

So if that's true, that opens a lot of cheaper choices.
