    I have pirelli scorpion ice & snow on my taco...have not seen snow yet to commet but I run michelin latitude alpin on my 06 tundra.....geat ride, long tread life, great on ice and fairly good in snow...not great as the tread is not too aggresive

    pirellis seem softer then the michelins so I do not expect great treadlife

    Nothing at the moment
    I went economic and got Firestone Winterforce tires. I've never gotten stuck doing anything with my truck. Even went skiing and drove through 3 feet of snow to get to the mountain and didn't have any problems.

    I've had Bridgestone Blizzaks in the past and was really impressed with them. The Michelin X-Ice are supposed to be really good.
    But the best winter tires I've had were the Hankook I*Pike hands down.
