Jay, this is a safety issue. "Pulling" lug bolts into alignment will stretch the metal and weaken it. This is NOT a normal practice and can result in eventual lug bolt failure. Please demand that Street Beast replace that front rotor.

Worst case... if they refuse you can always take the hub to just about any machine shop and have the offending lug pressed out and replaced. It will cost you a few bucks but without a new hub that's the only safe way to do it.
