Accepting the Absolute Necessity of Snow Tires

Having experienced the terror of winter driving with the stock Dunlops, I switched them out for the much-loved BFGOODRICH G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S SL. They were superb for a while, though with every passing week/month, they start feeling more like the Dunlops, as y'all warned me.

I was forced to drive through that freak snowstorm a few weeks ago in the northeast, and it still felt life-in-hands. Could not get up a mild, snow-plowed hill even with a running start. This car just does not like snow.

So two questions:

1. Why doesn't every single Mazda 6 owner (in even marginally snowy areas) switch to snow tires each winter?

2. Which ones do you recommend?

FWIW, I'm in NY Tristate, with a 2015 Mazda 6 Touring
