Default Worcester area tire shaving

I tried search and found only a few related threads but nothing recent.
2005 is not fresh info.

Is there anybody shaving tires in central MA? Boston or RI is close enough too.
I got nice 3 inch screw in shoulder of the tire and need to match the new tire to the rest.

If you buy the tire from Tire Rack, they will shave it for you.

Is this for the 13 Focus in your profile or a Subaru? If it's for a Focus, there's no need to match it.

It is for FWD Volvo which I know is not a must but having 3 tires at 5/32 and one at 10/32 is not optimal.
I have summer Nokians so Tire Rack is not an option :-(

New tire is on its way, now looking for "tire barbers" ;-)

See post #4.

I was looking for tire shaving when I got a nail in my old Eagle F1's. That was the only place I could find. I never actually went to them because Eagle F1's aren't made in my size anymore so I had to buy a new set (Pilot Super Sports really grip!). The impression I get is that tire shaving is not a service that is widely needed, so not many places do it. Good luck!
