Agreed.....I have a cheap Dial type that I got from Harbor Freight for a couple bucks. Works great.

You know what I use? The freebie from Discount Tire. Good enough.

Personally I avoid digital ones since they are reliant on batteries. Accu-Gage makes several models of analog gauges that are accurate and also have bleeder valves which is a very convenient feature.

I've been using this Longacre for over 10 years. It has a bleeder valve too, which is a necessity IMO.

I've had one of these for 8 or 10 years, I think I've changed the battery once.

Maybe, but I figured out that the ones at Walmart aren't accurate...at all.

I bought 3-4 and every one of them gave a different reading. When you have a $1K set of tires on several different rigs, having them properly inflated can save you some $$$ over the long term.

I just push on the tire to judge if it needs air or not.

its one of the tests you have to pass to get your man card.

Use this on the big truck. Milton Industries make professional grade gages and such American Made.

They are the Starrett, Snap-On in their field.

That's what I use since *most* gauges only go to 60 psi. I need 80 in my F-350 tires and up to 100 in my air bags.
