Air Gauges

Just curious. I've got 4 air gauges. One is the long truck style air gauge. Next time I put my hands on it, I'll throw it away because the scale isn't exactly clear as to what mark is what. Of the other three, only two of them read the same. The one that is differbnt is about 20 psi different. One is the style that is a hose that goes to a gauge. It was labeled for dually tires. I'm particular about my tires and it's annoying to see this. I plan on getting a reliable air gauge and attaching it to the hose style. I'm probably too particular. One or two psi probably wont' matter but I'd really like to have a gauge I can trust. So if you have only 1 gauge or you have 2 which one do you trust. I deal with the car tires for the wife and the E tires for my truck so two gauges will probably always be on hand. What do y'all use.

I should probably start by spending more than $3 on an air gauge. I'm kidding but it probably is good advice.

Tru-Flate (17-555) 10-160 PSI Dial Truck Tire Gauge https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002M3FZNA..._D-otxbT5598AQ

I have been happy with this one. I recently bought a small compressor as well. This gauge allows you to let some air out via a small button to get the tires just right. I used my compressor, gauge and tire chuck before my recent trip and it was sooo sweet. Done with the station equipment.

I use two. The first is the long stick type from NAPA that allows me to check the inside dually. The second is a dial meter with a bleed button that I use to set the air bags on my truck. I picked it up on Amazon several years ago. It's dial is ruberized and has a 9" or so flexible hose.
