Accurate Tire Gauge

Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:32 pm

Two things that have eluded me throughout my life (besides wealth and good looks) is a good creeper and an accurate tire gauge. I have numerous tire gauges from the pencil type to the dial type. Never had much interest in a digital gauge knowing that when I need it the batteries would be dead. I can grab any three of them, check a tire and get three different readings. I've got a birthday coming up and my wife wants to know what I want. An accurate tire gauge would be at the top of the (affordable) list. Anyone got one they could recommend??

I have found the cheap digital tire gauges such as the Slime that Walmart and Autozone sell to be very accurate and them and their batteries last for years. it is much easier to make an accurate electronic sensor to read pressure cheaply than a mechanical gauge.

Your local NAPA store should have a heavy duty pressure gauge that is "Certified" to be accurate.
Sold for about $35.00
