Air gauge

What’s a good accurate tire gauge?

It's not the speed....it's that sudden stop.

Round dial type like race car teams still use. I got them at Autozone or Napa but Amazon has everything. Find one like this with a hose and a 45 or 90 degree chuck on it for easy on the stem;

The brand I use is Accu Gauge. I believe that is the name. Suppose to be certified to be accurate within, I don't remember, but a low %.

My experience with pencil gauges is not good. And you get what you pay for.
Harkon and StarrRider like this.

BTW, most digital gauges are complete and utter junk. Can't offer the same reading just seconds apart.
