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.

Centerline,

Thank you for the advice, Once we're ready, we'll get the car outside and give it an honest look. At that point, we will contact Street Beasts.
