High Rockies/Denver Tire Shop Help

Need some new shoes and my 1 1/4 BORA Spacers installed but need the existing lugs cut down. I'm looking for some 275/55/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers and would like to find one reputable shop to do it all.
Does anyone have a recommendation preferably around Summit County but Denver would work too.
Big O in Frisco could put me out the door with just the tires for just shy of a grand but weren't willing to do the spacers.
Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just for a shop to do the spacers.

I don't think you have to cut the lugs with the 1 1/4. Did you install the spacers to test if the lugs sit flush with the spacer?

I have an Altitude and from reading all the info on the spacer forum, the Altitude wheels do not have a recess for the original lugs and they need to be cut so they are flush.

Re: High Rockies/Denver Tire Shop Help

So...I know very little about this kind of thing, but I'm thinking that cutting the lugs isn't the best idea. Perhaps the better long-term solution that will not affect the vehicle when you move on to another in the future would be to use wheels that can accommodate the spacers and original lugs without any vehicle modification. 'Just sayin...

Re: High Rockies/Denver Tire Shop Help

First, High Rockies is redundant, as everyone here is high.

Second, agree with Jim, buy the proper length lugs vs. cutting them, and pretty much any tire shop should be able to help you with a basic spacer and wheelset install.

You could try Meadow Creek Tire in Frisco.

As the others have mentioned, I wouldn't recommend cutting lugs. If you end up ever wanting to go back, it will be a very expensive proposition to replace them.

No, not everyone in CO is high on something other than purely altitude.

Re: High Rockies/Denver Tire Shop Help

From what others have posted on here they only cut 6-9 mm off each lug which barely makes it to the actual threads.
From my understanding switching back, which I see no need to ever do, should not be a big deal with such a small amount taken off.

Most tire shops send you to a brake shop to deal with lugs issues. They might even be able to fit uncut lugs of a better length.
It wouldn't be that expensive to have a brake shop put in standard length ones should you feel the need. Not free, but if you must cut your lugs, it is not undoable.
