Wheel shops in NW suburbs

long story short, I have a set of 2 piece wheels that I'd want welded to become one piece. (it hurts me to have to do it, but whatever)

does anyone have any recommendations on places, preferably in Chicago's NW burbs?

Thanks!

Not to thread jack but I saw you mention in another thread for someone asking about getting their brake calipers painted. Do they still do that?

Old thread but maybe helpful if anyone is still looking, I've had wheels redone in a black chrome finish on older car and looked great. Tell them Brandon from Porsche sent you.
