After changing my rear wheel offset so there is no more rear spacer I cut my rear studs down with a cut off wheel on a die grinder while they were on the car. No different than cutting any other bolt and alot easier than removing them.

Then used the side of the cut off wheel while pivoting the die grinder around the end of the stud to put a small bevel on the edges and clean it up. then painted the end of the stud black so it doesn't rust.
The cut off wheels are dirt cheap at harbor freight.

The inflateable spare tire wheel will not clear the rear calipers without at least a 15mm-18mm spacer so I left enough stud length to still use it with a spacer if needed.
