Machine shop that will cut hub bolts

I bought a set of extended ARP hub bolts/wheel studs that unfortunately only come in one size of 68mm, and I'm looking for a machine shop that will be able to take off about 20mm of it cleanly without fckin up the thread. The proper method from my understanding would be to put a open end nut screw on, cut the bolt/stud, then unscrew the nut slowly so it cleans up the thread




Here's pics of size difference OEM (42mm) vs ARP (68mm)









And here is how the ARP's stick out because of their size, they require open ended lugnuts.

we should be able to help you out but how about using hub centric spacers & closed end nuts?

^ I forgot to update the thread I actually ended up calling ARP directly to ask them if it's safe to cut the studs, and their rep told me they can make custom studs according to my specs so I ordered the size I want.

thanks anyway Akira

i would just cut with a cutting disc/whelel. If the tip of the thread gets a little buggered, i'm sure it can be easily cleaned up with a thread file. if the stud is strong enough at 68mm, i'm pretty sure it will be strong enough when is 20mm shorter
