This is the best tire gauge we've ever found, period. It's easy to read, and it goes up to 100 pounds, so you can use it to check high-pressure spare tires, too.  It holds the reading, so you can remove the gauge from the tire to get a closer look at the number. It's got a flexible hose, so there's no fiddling with the valve stem. The gauge is constructed with full-geared, solid brass precision movement with a bronze bourdon tube. Unlike piston-plunger-type gauges, the bourdon tube movement is not affected by changes in humidity, temperature or altitude. And it's got a rubber cover to protect it against shocks.

Why are we selling a tire gauge? Because maintaining correct tire pressure is critical and often neglected--it affects everything from handling to braking to gas mileage to tire wear. And, it’s something you can easily do yourself.

Unfortunately, pencil-type tire gauges and those at your local Eat n’ Get Gas aren’t likely much good.  This is a good one.
