You really don't want to cut wheel studs with a hacksaw - would be a miserable job that would look like sh@t, too! Do you have an air compressor at home? If you do, you should consider buying a pneumatic die grinder, a cut-off wheel bit for it, and a package of carbide wheels/discs (also some grinding stones to dress the cuts). These tools are not very expensive, and this way, the cutting routine wouldn't be so bad and look much better.
just drive them out and install shorter ones. The studs come in several different lengths.You start cutting on them then they will no longer weigh the same as the one next to it, and it will throw the hub out of balance. At those speeds it doesn't take a lot of difference. an out of balance hub will lead to a whole new learning experience with replacing wheel bearings. They are really easy to just drive out and replace, much easier than cutting them. plus you can save the old ones in case you want to go back to stock.
