Yeah, that was the first thing on my list. They looked good, but all of the reviews said they were worthless on snow and ice.
My previous vehicle was a 2004 Escape, and I never had dedicated winter tires, and never got stuck. I am hoping that I won't have to have dedicated winter tires on the Tacoma. The Michelins have a good rating for snow and ice. I will probably put some concrete bags in the back for a little weight.
