  • Checking tire air pressure. Gauge brand

    My current Accutire gauge is digital display type. Battery is giving up. Need to replace them. I carry one on the bike and one at home in the shop

    i usually spend 10 - 15 bucks and use the tool for several years. The ones I've had alll seem to be close to same pressure when checked with other gauges of similar quality.

    Looking for comments - suggestions

    I've found that the even the cheap Slime digital gauges are fairly accurate and seem to be consistent with my TPMS readings.
    I have pretty much quit using the old pencil type gauges. There has always been too much variation in reading between them.

      http://www.ghmeiser.com/ez-air-series.htm This the one I like. Locks on the valve and can fill or release air while hooked up. Milton also makes some nice quality gauges as well.

        The batteries are replaceable - at least they are on the MS430B gauges I have in all three of my vehicles.



        They use two two CR2032 lithium batteries, which are readily available. A really small Philips head screwdriver lives in my bike's toolbag just for that reason.

          EZ02 for me. Also enjoy the lock and release air features.

                I dug out some old tire gauges... I tend to keep them after they are worn out , like the old cell phones in a drawer. Still have my Motorola small brick phone.

                I learned that one of the old Accutire pressure gauge has replaceable batterys. SR44 type button battery. Dang thing works great now.

                  I use a Slime 20187 which has a wrap around hose on it. I have used it for about 8 months and think it is pretty easy to use. The problem with it is the numbers are not very clear when the sun is really bright.
