Studded winter tires for Model Y

I bought a second set of 19" Gemini rims (used) and put on Nokian Hakkapeliitta 10 SUV (Studded) 255/45R19XL 104T tires from Tires-easy. Have had them on about a month, and we love them. I was surprised how quiet they are in the model Y compared to studded tires on our other cars. I'm not a big performance car guy, but I don't notice any difference in dry pavement handling between these tires and the stock summer set-up. Our local tire shop said they couldn't find studded tires, but when they were mounting this set they checked again and said they could have gotten them, so if you give your local shop the posted brand and specs they may have better luck.
