After playing Ashe up to 30, I decided to start playing Taric to mix things up and try out tanking. I was wondering what you guys think the hero with the best PURE tanking ability is. I'm thinking either Taric or Kayle, but as I said I'm knew to the tanking scene. Any help?

A propery played Cho`Gath can hit 7k hit points quite easily in a game...

A properly played game with a team playing proper shouldn't get that far into the match.

Hands down, Singed. That man gets HP out the wazoo quite easily.

Agreed.
Or the best tank would be Sion, since he is the only guy with no HP limits.

Your question it too general.

There are a few things when it comes to tanking

  • total hp (attacks that ignore mitigation)
  • ehp vs magic (magical nukes/aoes/abilities)
  • ehp vs physical (autoattack or specific abilities), which includes dodge.
  • dodge
  • active and passive shields/absorbs (/wave morgana).
  • healing (hp regen, active healing spells/auras, lifesteal).
  • movement (if the enemy cannot get into range, he/she cannot hit you).
  • range (see above)
  • cc (stuns, disables, slows).
extremely specific example:
x and y champs have 0 cc and do majority of damage from autoattack.
  • x lifesteals 100 hps and does 200 dps to y after y's mitigation.
  • y doesnt heal at all and does 300 dps to x after x's mitigation.
both have equal max hp. however y moves much faster and is ranged.

TL;DR

Cho'gath is probably the purest tank in forms of HP but Sion and Alistar is also pretty hefty with his Lifesteal, Damage Reduction, and Health Increase.

Tank-iest from Highest to Lowest:

Cho'Gath
Sion / Alistar
Rammus
Amumu

I would list singed but he's not even listed as a tank in-game.

I'm going to go with Mundo. His passive gives you hp regen based on how much total hp you have, and with warmogs/sunfire you have plenty of both hp and regen. Stack dodge runes, get the 21 defense mastery for reduced damage (and swiftness after dodge), get ninja tabi for your boots, and buy a force of nature. Your ult makes you damn near invulnerable for 12 seconds as your regen outpaces any damage you take.
