I took mine to:

The Ultimate Paint Shop Inc.
28865 Nagel Court, Lake Bluff

based on some buzz on the NSX forums (early Google hit for Chicago wheel repairs). I would not recommend them. They charged $225 to repair and re-paint my 189, and after giving me a big spiel about how they remove the tire and re-paint the whole wheel to replicate the factory finish, there's a big-ass masking tape line in the barrel and the tire was obviously never removed.



Edit: I see lots of recommendations for Transwheel; I might try them if I need to do another one.
