I have never seen a tire come pre-studded up here in Alaska. Local shops and dealers have to install the studs and they are all simple pins. Those fancy pins in that link are factory European tires and studs, I have never seen anything like that in use. My tires were studded at a Wingfoot shop (Good Year commercial big truck tire shop), then mounted and road force balanced at my local GM dealer.
