Digital Air Pressure Gauge

If I buy another air pressure gauge I want to buy a really good one that is accurate. Any recommendations?

Thanks
Ed

I've had great luck with this one for about three years. It's very accurate and handy with the control valve and clamp on head.

I have that same one. It seems to work fine with the pressure readings matching my other gauges. Not sure though, if the OP wants something like that or just the gauge. I don't have a recommendation for a stand alone digital gauge.

My favorite to use away from the house is not digital. Not sure the model number is the same but it looks just like the one below.

Milton Dual Head Chuck Service Gauge

Using the same two since 2013, still working fine, they agree with each other and the tpms.

I watched a video comparing different gauges. The old style manual spring gauges were most consistent and accurate. And the batteries never die!

I use a Milton Dual Head also. It has been very reliable, easy to use, and accurate.

When I was racing motorcycles on a road course type track, proper air pressure was the difference between shredding a brand new almost $200 tire, or getting several days out of it. A couple of tenths of pressure would make or break the tire. I went searching for an extremely accurate tire pressure gauge and found the Longacre brand.

The one I bought was a zero to 60 psi gauge, but they make other pressure range gauges too. It was guaranteed to be within 1/2 of 1%. So for example, at thirty psi......1% would .3 psi and half of that would be .15 psi

They are expensive, but they do make what they claim on the accuracy. I had min tested on a machine that could increase or decrease air pressure by 1/1000 psi and I had the guy run it from 15 psi to 60 psi in 1/2 psi increments. Every single step was within tolerance.

I stepped up and bought a Blue Point/Snap on kit gauge only. We have a similar one in our shop but it fills also. Very important to calibrate(turn on) before attaching to a wheel

Milton Dual Head Chuck Service Gauge
The Milton is my favorite, too. However I think that you might be referring to this model: Milton s-986C Calibratable Tire Pressure Service Gauge, Dual Head Straight Foot Chuck, 10-160 PSI (https://www.amazon.com/Milton-Indust...ps%2C63&sr=8-5)

At ~$32, it's about $6 more than the non-calibratable model. A good tire shop will have their gauges calibrated and are usually happy to let you check your gauge against one of their calibrated gauges.

Take care,
Stu

Tire Minder markets a very good digital tire pressure gage that has auto shut off and is accurate.
