Actually there is no bis list for tanks. Some gear is better on different encounters.
https://wotlkdb.com/?item=51901, https://wotlkdb.com/?item=49904, https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50991 and https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50466 also bis due to extra armor. Default boots should be https://wotlkdb.com/?item=54579 (more armor, stamina and avoidance). For heroic halion and sindragosa you may want to have expertise hard cap (56). https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50625, https://wotlkdb.com/?item=51268 and https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50968 are here to help you.
Another option is using only 2T10 pieces (chest and gloves due to additional armor on them). 4T10 ppala bonus is weaker than other tanks (12% dodge against 12% overall dmg reduction 10sec per 1min, its useless against magic damage and some abilities), so you can ignore it. https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50640 with additional hit and https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50660 with additional socket.
https://wotlkdb.com/?item=50344 for bosses with mostly physical damage (marrowgar, dbs, bpc, maybe festergut)

Is there any Pre-Pre-BiS list? Like a “I just hit 80 what gear do I get” thing?

go around different rep vendors to see what where u can easily get ilvl 200 gear, otherwise you can buy or to random dungeon finders. after that you keep grinding until about 3.8k gs(gear score) (get that addon) and then go heroics for emblems of frost and emblems of triumph, thereafter you buy the pre BiS gear as shown in the guide, there after you ICC dungeon grind and eventually raid
