Looking for a good accurate tire pressure gauge. Not all my vehicles have the PSI monitor.

Thank You

As an old guy I've had a plethora of tire pressure gauges over the years, but my favorite to date is the Green Slime dial gauge. Digital gauges are ok, but if you're the least bit OCD, the readouts in 1/10's will drive you nuts trying to get all 4 tires the same. :unsure:

Well I probably have you beat on the age, I'm 75:) I'll check out the Green Slime dial gauge. I too prefer a analog over digital.

When purchasing a tire gauge, look for a guaranteed percentage of accuracy. Do not purchase one that does not have that, or from my experience over the years , it will not be accurate.

I also recommend the Summit Racing style. I’ve had one of that style going on 40 years. There are other quality brands of that version out there. The biggest benefit is it has a bleed off valve. Overfill the tires a bit and then bleed off to the pressure you want.

I use the greenslime dial and tube similar to the summit racing one above for my dully truck, i have to reach in to check the inside tires. I use the greenslime dual end stick for my terrain. Im not too picky with accuracy. Pressure changes with temp so as long as im within 2-3psi of the recommended at cold temp im fine with that. As for the digital issue, there are plenty of monitors you can get on amazon that arnt bad on price that have good reviews.
