Guess I got too rough with my tires too soon. Plus, I have a habit of taking real tight u turns. I noticed that a few of the studs on my tires were beginning to come out. I re-set them with a small screwdriver. I did lose two. Anyone know where I can get replacements?

If they are new try E-Mailing them firstname.lastname@example.org . Suomityres is there new name. A poster here in the past had good luck with this and they sent him a bag of studs and a tire tool for inserting the studs.
Alternatively, you could try your local Goodyear store or other automotive tire store. I used to stud car snow tires back in the day. The ones in bike tires don't look much different. Not saying they'll work, but it's worth a try.

I've heard that the Innova stud replacements will work on the Nokians. Now these studs are NOT carbide and will wear quicker, but at least you'll have the gaps filled.
They're fairly cheap.....let us know if you try them out.

I've lost a handful per tire and don't notice (out of 296).

Are you saying that you are a few studs short of a full tire castiron?? LOL
