Studded tire problem in only 20 days after installation

I live in Canada. I’ve installed a set of four Nokian HAK9 Studded tires on my Acura MDX 2014 about 20 days ago. It’s too noisy in medium to high-speed driving (I’ve asked the official dealer to fix it but they didn't do anything more than rebalancing the tires and unfortunately, it didn't help)
Today, I've realized there is sign of wearing tire around front wheel outer studs.
Do you have any idea about the cause of the problem?

Greetings from fellow Canadian!

Not sure what you expected from the dealer in terms of reducing the noise - after all, these are studs, they will be noisy.

Just curious - where in Canada do you live that you need studded winter tires? If you are driving with studs on regular asphalt, expect them to wear out very soon.

In terms of uneven wear - perhaps, you need wheel alignment?
