Tire pressure Gauge recomendation

I am looking for a Tire pressure gauge that is accurate and reasonable price. I have found some digital gauges out there but just because they are expensive does not guarantee they are accurate. My tire pressure max is 120psi so thinking 150psi max gauge.

Look for a Milton gauge I think it is # 976. Not digital but accurate. Tom 07 Pacifica

Basically any tire gauge made for truck tires will work for you. Don't overthink it. Spending a fortune won't reap any real benefits.

Cheap and accurate. I have three of them and they all agree, and the tpms agrees with them.

I too have used a Milton S976 (several of them, and a straight chuck S986) for decades. I think they're still made in the U.S. It seems that they're still around $15.

eta: okay, I just looked it up on Amazon

Milton S-976 - Amazon

(johnhicks, can't tell what you were referencing on Amazon)

I have a milton, and it was great for years, now not so accurate. I prefer digital, and use this one- https://www.amazon.com/Astro-3018-Pr...%2C234&sr=8-14.

It appears to be internally and externally (except color and label) identical to my $150 Snap-On.

I have this one. It is accurate and will measure in 1/2lb increments unlike analog which measure in 2# increments, and vary depending upon the viewing angle (have an analog too). I took both to a Firestone store and had them checked with their master gauge, the digital is more accurate.

I appreciate the responses. I have two that don't agree with each other and there are a sea of choices out there, so a recommendation goes a long way. I have always monitored my tires carefully, car, trailer and RV.

I'm also a fan of Milton. I have the model with the 5' hose & I changed the fitting that attaches to the tire with a "clamp on" type so I can be away from the tire. I think it's wise to not be face to face with a truck tire.

Milton. To be able to add air and remove the chuck makes checking pressure so much easier.

This..... you can pay more but a standard truck tire gauge is all you need. Tire pressures should be the same on both sides of an axle and as long as you use the same gauge, you can sleep well at night. I use a chrome truck gauge, works great.

Good luck Rick
