Everywhere else I checked they're ~50+shipping, this was ~40shipped....pretty cool gauge mainly because it measures in .1lb incriments :yup:

While digital tire gauges are nice, a good quality old-fashioned pencil gauge can work just as well and requires much less space. I use a NAPA gauge, which cost all of $8, which was a lot for a pencil gauge. I have matched it against known calibrated digital guages; and it has always been accurate for over ten years now.

This is the one I bought many years ago and seems to be pretty good as it matches up at all four corners with the in-dash pressure display.

Guys, You can't compare any of those $8 chepo guages with the guage mentioned above.
That guage has a bleed valve for dropping pressures down.
However, because it is still a digital guage getting updated pressure readings as you bleed down to target pressure is a PITA.

I prefer these Longacre guages.

They have the bleed valve and you get instant readings (no waiting for digital crap to update and display).

I have one of each of the 2" models.
I'm going to pick up a 2-1/2" next for the longer hose and swivel chuck.

If you like digital go nuts:

I have that one too, and yes it does match the in-dash perfectly...thats why I bought their upper end model.

Analog are just as accurate until they are dropped too many times. :)

^^and mine usually stay in the spare tire well in the trunk, so they get beat to hell.

I dont know about you guys, but if the dash says 30 lbs I am good. If its high, I let some out, if its low I put some in.
