Tire Presure gauge

I noticed there has been a few posting regarding air compressors including my self.....but nothing on tire pressure gauges. Some really good one's are by Longacre Racing, Intercomp and Moroso. There not cheap but very accurate. I keep the Intercomp in the rig and it has a 4" dial face and easy to read.....a must have accessory for the rig.

I replaced the cheap pen style with something similar to your summit. A couple years now and use it atleast every other week checking truck/ rv tires.

I have this guy and LOVE it. Inflates and deflates down to 3 psi, great for quads and small tires. For commercial tires I have a clip on style/flow throw inflator for speed

My favorite is my Longacre but its only a 0-60 PSI gauge so it gets home duty.

I also have the Matco, only real accurate gauge I've found that goes above 100...need that for the big pushers for front tire inflation.

Guage

Checked out the ones ya'll have listed. I need one that goes up to at least 110lbs for rear tires on DP. Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

Longacre has this one https://www.summitracing.com/parts/lng-53028


There are several from Amazon and Ebay but never had good luck with them.....one thing to be aware of most digital gauges are sensitive to heat and if you store them in a hot rig you may have issues, and if you drop them or bang them around they could get damaged plus you need to swap batteries occasionally. We switched over to analog gauges and never had issues. I guess if you needed higher PSI read out you could always swap out the gauge to higher PSI one.

Many people throw around the word "accurate" when talking about tire pressure gauges, but without checking against a calibrated source, how do you really know? Just because an expensive digital gauge reads to 0.1psi does not mean that it is any more or less accurate (or precise) than a cheap pencil tire pressure gauge. I prefer repeatability (precision) over absolute accuracy. Kind of like target shooting, there is a difference between accuracy and precision.

I suggest people have two gauges. One is their personal "master" that they have compared with known good gauge (large tire dealer should have a master.


You keep the master packed away and us it as a ref to your daily gauge.


My Master is Accutire from Amazon. I have 3 and all are within 0.5 psi of laboratory ISO standard gauges. Just because a gauge is expensive doesn't make it accurate.


Also I see no reason for needing better than +/- 2% accuracy at the pressures in your tires. You probably didn't weigh to that level and you still should be running a +10% margin above your minimum psi based on Load & Inflation tables.


You are not driving at Indy or in NASCAR.

I purchased a good digital gauge for 11 bucks. I then use this as a "master gauge". Every couple of months I check the accuracy of my dual chuck air pressure gauge against the digital gauge. The link below is the Amazon offering. All the best.
