Tire Pressure Gauge?

So, i have a good ARB dial tire pressure gauge that works great when i had my off road truck and had to deflate down to low pressures for better traction. The problem is it only goes up to 60psi max and I now have a Ram 2500 where the TPMS goes off when the pressures in the rear goes below 80psi mark. At least it is going off now with 76psi in the tires.

I am finding some models that of to 100psi but have just never heard of the brands or their quality. Prices are between $20-$30. Looking for the dial with relief button and whip. What are you guys using brand wise? Thanks

I would try Geno's Garage. com. They support the Ram (Dodge) truck line from the very first diesel trucks built in 1989 to the new 2016 trucks. In their catalog there is listed a Milton Hi Pressure tire gage with a range from 0-160 PSI for $38.95 part number MILS936. This has the dual foot inflator chuck and a 12" hose.

I have a gauge made by as seen here GA-850-370 by HALTEC - Standard Bore Digital Air Gauge w/CH-370 dual foot air chuck

I had it tested in our mechanical test lab and it was dead on when tested in 10 pound increments up to 130 PSI. I didn't go further because my tires only require 120.

I bought a good commercial tire gauge from a truck tire shop. It works great!

Check Roger Marble's web site on Tire Safety/Guages he recommends the Accutire MS-4021B and you can find it for less than $15.

I have a Milton dual head gauge that I salvaged from the trash about 40 years ago where I was working a summer job. It had tire patch goo on it and the gauge rod was stuck. Cleaned it and I've checked it with some pretty expensive racing gauges and it has been dead on and is still on according to my Tektron digital and a couple good pencil gauges. As far as being 'dead on' - that's really not a big deal with tires as long as they are evenly inflated and within a couple pounds. The read tire pressures will vary quite a bit with temperature so with that in mind - just make sure that they are pretty close, but ------VVVVV


or from Goodyear:

and even better from Bridgestone:

I bought one of these a while ago. I really like it, seems to be pretty accurate. Much easier to use than those old mechanical ones.

I bought a certified gauge at NAPA and use it to check my others. Do need to throw one of the others away (Harbor Freight cheapie) as it all of a sudden is reading 10#'s low on a 30# psi tire!

I bought this one and like it. I wanted to be able to check the tire and fill as needed with one device.

I bought a dual head chuck and gauge from Graingers. I trust them with my life, obviously. Not too expensive either.
