    yeah, if you google Pirelli Scorpion ATR, you come up with good reviews from a Tundra Forum and 4Wheel & Off-Road magazine to name a few...

    I thought about the Scorps for the Taco -- doesn't seem like a lot of folks run those on these trucks....

    they just don't look terribly aggressive to me... hmm

    Agree, looks are an important part of the equation when it comes to tire decision, that's why I went with the Nitto TG's, they were the most aggressive looking ones on the list IMO.
