    Default Looking For A Good Tire Guage

    I am tired of using cheap and/or inaccurate tire gauges. I do a couple
    of track days each month and wonder what the rest of you folks use.

    I am willing to spend $$$ of something accurate and reliable. Would
    prefer to stay away from digital and battery operated units as they
    seem to break quickly. WTS - I could be convinced to consider them as well.

    Seems ok. You could also get one from John or Brandon at P1.

    I haven't tested mine against John's, so I need to do that.

    BTW, the one I bought was through Agg racing because I wanted to support the guy. You can find them cheaper.

    Longacre 50407. Not cheap (around $170 on Amazon.com). 4" dial. Have used one for 6 years now. Have it calibrated every year (iso standard). Hasn't needed an adjustment.

    another vote for longacre. I have the 50412, which is the 60 psi x 1lb 2.5" glow in the dark gauge:

    it has an angled chuck and will hold the pressure reading until you release it.

    Definitely the way to go if you are looking for accuracy.
