Studded tires

I was wondering if it's possible to replace studs on studded tires. I know there's some good tires but studs are bit worn down. Is it possible to replace them. thanks

The short answer is no.
Now, the long part! The tire has worn down some, the stud holes have elongated plus will tear out a bit more if you pull the old out. Additionally, if there are any missing, there is every chance that there are little pebbles or dirt that wont let the new ones seat.

Being too long - the long new ones could be driven through the casing and cause a flat, or many slow leaks. then there is the fact that they will actually decrease your dry road traction - and they have bad enough dry road traction to begin with (amazing how many studs you will lose if you spin out on a dry road - from experience and how I found that you can't or shouldn't restud )

you would have to have the holes clean, so you wouldnt want to put new ones in a hole where one was missing (will cause flats)
but if you pulled out the old, worn down ones and the holes are spotless, you could replace them

because, studs come in different lengths, you could just put in shorter ones than the tire was designed for

however, the holes would be out of shape, so only some would stay in the tire

the biggest problem is----no tire shop will do it

I have done it, when I worked at a chev dealership
but it was a waste of time
