How much snow do you get? Once a week? Once every 2 weeks? How long does it last? Having snow tires may not be the answer for you. If your normal daytime highs are above 40 degrees and you go weeks with no snow than forget snow tires.
the thing is if I get those blizzaks then ill have to swap rims ever day just about cause one day the roads will be snowy and the next dry as a bone and hot if I lived in the mountains it would be fine
I live in southwest Michigan and we get a lot of "lake effect snow" so that is why winter tires are for me. If I lived 50 miles south in Indiana where their snow fall is 1/3 of what I get I wouldn't sweat the hassle of changing tires and just run good all season tires. There are many good all season tires that will handle snow quite well.
BTW My wife's 96 Outback has Bridgestone Blizzaks and I have Dunlop Graspics on my 93 Legacy AWD wagon. I am very happy with both. Blizzaks are more $$ but a touch better. The Grapics are great and a little less money. I drive more miles and will wear mine out quicker so I didn't want to burn through more expensive tires so fast. Year 3 for the Blizzaks and they still have 75%+ tread left.

Not true! Ask any Alaskan and you'll see that there is a huge difference between studded and non-studded tires.

the way i see it is that it only takes one situation to be very grateful to have gotten them or to eternally regret not.
