Thanks to everyone for their assistance between my other two posts and the private messages I have received.
I have decided to go with the Cooper CS5 Ultra Touring for tires. After several days of research between Michelin, Cooper, Pirelli, and Continental, I think the CS5's will suit me very well for my demands of an all season performer. Just gotten to busted up and down to get back into swapping between two sets.
As for brakes/rotors, I ordered the DBA T3 Clubspec 4000 series with Hawk ceramics. I KNOW I KNOW, even the guy at KNS tried to talk me in to the HPS 5.0's. I can always change out pads if these don't suit my needs, and y'all can tell me "we told you so"
I also ordered a set of Centric premium rotors and Centric posi quiet ceramic for the '04 Outback I bought for my daughter. Hoping to get her car up to the stereo shop to get her a new stereo set up since only one speaker works.
