What tire gauge would you guys recommend for me that is very accurate and will go past 50psi.
This doesn't belong in general section because this is for mpg only, cheap tire gauges are for regular psi(30-35)
I need something that will be very, very accurate every time and when I inflate the tires at 50 or higher psi it will stay accurate. My regular one that is one that has the stick come out gets very inaccurate after 46-47psi. If I'm to go past 50psi I want it to be made that is at least made to go to 60psi.
It has to be affordable too, don't give me links for those pro ones that are $155.
i'll let you how accuate the analog gauge in the coleman is, because i'm sure digital is better but the digital one can only be used with the 12volt (so car has to idle while i pump tires! bs). While the coleman has a built in battery in it, so it can be portable or charged either way (house plug too).
check back in 24 hours or less. My sidewall pressure is 51 so im going to tip toe to 55 psi or even 60 depending on how good this coleman pressure is. I have a power battery pack station air compressor as well but its gauge is way off (ok so i lied i got three!) so I rarely use it because recalibrating with the digital one ain't fun at all so hopefully this coleman i just bought will be good enough.
If your reading this, then good for you, your saving some gas because your here.
I'm just looking for a tire pressure gauge alone, no pumps. I want one that's portable and can be used on it's own power source, meaning I don't have to hook it up to anything to make it work. Make sure you include the product model.
i believe i got mine at wal-mart on a discount shelf for $1-$2...
has a led light and is accurate to .1 psi
3 digit readout...
you have to reset it each time you take a reading...
so like 3 times per tire...which takes about 3 seconds to reset holding the button...
true accuracy unknown...
i've had it over a year...still working on first battery
I went to autozone and they had no selection. Went to Pep boys and bought a $18 digital that goes up to 150psi. It showed 1-2psi difference between my crappy .99 cent gauge and this one. I'm waiting till my tires cool off and will take it above 50psi.
With gas being $2.89 the cheapest around here I'm going to have to check my pressure often and have to make sure it's accurate.
I'm a little late on this one, but I bought a new gauge a couple weeks ago. Brookstone had a nice one with a huge dial indicator, and rather than being a solid piece it has two hoses so that I can connect it inline with my air compressor if I want to. $10 and it appears to be accurate.
