I gave this to my husband in his Christmas stocking. Great little gift. So far it seems the guage is very accurate. He's very happy with it. Great price. No complaints....more info
- everyone in the family has one
great xmas gift. bought one for everyone and they all think they work very well....more info
- Works every time
Overview: My dad got both my sisters and I one of these tire guages to measure the tire pressure and they work great.
Ease of use: Turns on when you apply it to the tire to get the air pressure and automatically turns off again when your done.
Accuracy: I have not tested the accuracy but for my car (which tells me when my air pressure is low) it works great
I recommend this to anyone looking for a reliable tire guage...more info
- Inexpensive, well built, accurate... what more can you ask?
I'm very happy with this little gizmo. Maintaining accurate tire pressure is important to tire wear and gas mileage. This is far more accurate than the old pencil type guage....more info
- Excellent tire pressure gage
This tire gauge works perfect, the great thing is it is illumiated so you can easilier see the pressure....more info
- Tire Gauge
Seems to be solid construction. Easy to use and read the numbers. Manufacturer guarantee of accuracy within .5 lb. is a big plus. In using any electronic device, I would be careful not to drop it.
Delivery came sooner than expcected!...more info
- Broke after only one use
Used it once when it was first purchased. Didn't need to use it for 12 months. Tried and it didn't work. Replaced the batteries ($12 cost), still doesn't work.
Rubbish. ...more info
- Hard to get a good seal
This device is disappointing. The 1st time I tried it, I couldn't get a reading other than 0.00. I was ready to give up on it, but I tried again a few days later. I was able to get a reading but it took multiple attempts per tire. I must have lost a few pounds of air pressure from each tire since it was so difficult to get a tight seal. I wanted to send it back to Amazon but according to the invoice they will only take it back within 30 days and I had waited too long to test out this device....more info
- Excellent Value!
Looking for a better air pressure gauge, I asked a worker at the local CostCo tire store what they used. He said they use the Accutire brand, which was available online for about $10. So I checked Amazon, and found a good deal. This gauge is easy to handle and read, and it is very accurate. It is one of the best things of any type that I've purchased in several years....more info
- What it lacks in ergonomics, it makes up for in performance
Fast, accurate, and precise are how I would describe this gauge. For those who don't know, precision is a metric of how well separate readings agree with each other. I've had problems with other gauges, where it was hard to get a reproducible reading. Not so with the Accutire.
The only improvement that could be made would be to make a more ergonomic grip. I don't think the design really makes sense given how the human hand would be holding it - but it's a very minor issue.
Get this! And make sure your tires are always inflated to their designated values (test while cold). You will get more even tread wear, performance, and mileage....more info
- Great tire gauge
I purchased 3 of these pressure gauges almost a year ago. They are easy to use, the LED is bright red so you can read it at night. The gauge is very accurate. I highly recommend it. ...more info
- Review for Tachikara digital tire gauge
Delivery was prompt. Product received was brand new. Great buying experience overall. Will definitely buy from Amazon.com again....more info
- Great tool!
I found this tire gauge to be very accurate. I love the digital display and it even shuts off automatically. I will never use those pop-out stick types again!...more info
- Don't leave home without it
This gauge has a very clean design as well as being easy to use. Throw that crummy chrome piece of c__p as far away as possible. This gauge is so much more accurate and easy to use than a convential gauge that it should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize....more info
- Very Pleased
This gauge is very accurate and easy to use. The angled head makes it a breeze to fit into the hard to fit places. ...more info
- Very Good Product
I purchased this digital tyre gauge from Amazon just over a week ago.
It works fine and I have had no problems with it so far
The reading is very visible in the dark
I have no hesitation in recommending this digital gauge to any one
out there .
- A little awkward to get a good reading
When I use this gauge I have trouble getting an accurate reading the first time. Unless you hit the inflation nozzle right on, the gauge will allow some air to escape from the tire and give an inaccurate reading. I'm still using this gauge, but it takes be 1.5-2 tries on average to get an accurate reading....more info
- Much better than my old dial gauge
I just purchased a new vehicle with tire pressure monitors and On-Star diagnostics. I figured it was time to also upgrade from my 20 year old dial gauge. Glad I did. I really like this unit. I find it challenging to add or subtract air in half pound increments, but I like the precision of the readout. It's definately a 21st century tool....more info
- cheap but...
can't seem to get a good seal. I just got it so maybe I need to fix my technique. ...more info
- Reliable and accurate, but with one fatal flaw
I've owned two versions of this gauge: An LCD version that I bought 7 or 8 years ago, and the more recent LED type. Aside from the display technology, they looked identical.
They were both accurate and reliable, but they both also had very poor sealing against the tire valve. The rubber ring that seals against the valve is too hard and uneven. You have to line the gauge up very precisely, and press very hard to avoid a burst of air escaping from the tire. If you don't get a good seal, the reading can be off, and a couple of bursts of air is enough to drop a tire by 1 psi. Every time I checked my tires, this happened on at least one or two of them. It's bad enough that I got into the habit of overfilling the tires by a couple of psi so that when this happened I would not end up below the desired pressure.
I finally got tired of it and bought a $26.00 gauge at Sears that seems to be just as accurate and does not have this problem....more info
- Very good but only two years...
I bought two of this 2 years ago... the tool worked very well, I can't complain about that.
Sadly, mine died about a month ago with the "L" error (Power supply depleted) which is covered under warranty "free of charged"... but for a tool that says "5 years warranty" I think 2 years of life is not good enough 'though my father has the other one and it's still working...
If possible I would give it a 3.5 stars rating, taking away one star for dying in less than 50% of the factory warranty time and half a star because sometimes it was a little difficult to gauge some tires without the air escaping (just some times)...
Even if I could send it to the factory (with package freight prepaid) I think it's easier and perhaps cheaper to just buy another two.
Will I buy them?... Yes, It's a good product.
- Easy to use
I really like this gauge. It works just like it said on the package and feels good in your hand. The readings seem to be accurate. The digital read out is large so it is easy to read by anyone. The pressure reading stays on the display long enough to get a good look before any further adjustment in air pressure....more info
- review of the Accutire MS-4021B tire gauge
I've only had the opportunity to use it once and can't comment on it's accuracy because I have no way of knowing. It's easy to use and the readout is bright....more info
- So nice
I really love this little thing. It feels so much more stable/accurate than the standard analog versions....more info
- Accutire MS-4021B review
I bought this tire gauge back in december of 2008. Been pretty happy with it. It has a very large psi range (5 to 150 psi). It has been pretty accurate from what I can tell. I have two gauges (the other one is a slime mechanical gauge) and they both agree around typical car tire pressures, but lower pressures (5-15 psi) they differ by about 1 psi. Haven't tested them above 45 psi. Accuracy of the digital per the manufacturer is 0.5psi +/- 1%, not what is stated by amazon. Overall very pleased with the gauge....more info
This tire pressure guage is not accurate at all and it leaks air everywhere. I kept getting a different reading every time. No matter how hard I pushed and how I positioned the guage it was impossible to stop leaks from the valve. I took a flashlight and looked inside the tip of the tire pressure guage. There is no washer/gasket at all where it's supposed to make contact with the tire valve! No wonder it leaks air. I ended up going to the local auto suply store and picked up one of those old fashioned tire guages. It works like a charm. Save yourself money and don't get this piece of garbage....more info
- over 10 years old and still accurate - time after time.
I've probably had this even longer (3+ cars worth)but want to be conservative. I live near the beach and 3-4 times a week I'm deflating all 4 tires down to 15 pounds spring through fall, and later in the day re inflating them all. Thus I need a highly accurate, reliable gauge. This is the best one I've ever had. The battery still seems strong; readings are instant and easy to read. Only complaint is I wish it had a nub to push on the valve stem with to release a small burst of air, but I use dedicated deflaters so it's not a real issue for me. ...more info
- Approval, with suggestion
This tire gauge works very well, and is consistent in its readings. At first, I had difficulty finding just the right angle of approach so as NOT to allow air to escape. Once that was done, the gauge more than fulfilled expectations.
I have one suggestion to the manufacturer: YOUR INSTRUCTIONS SHOULD INCLUDE AN ALERT TO REMOVE DISPLAY'S PROTECTIVE COVER. ...more info
- no good
The readings were all over the place, plus or minus by over 15 lbs. I know how to use this gauge and was very disappointed at the quality. I wound up with a Monkey brand from Checker that works fine. This digital gauge needs better quality control in manufacturing, it does not work as advertised or even come close to meeting the spec posted on the package....more info
- Looks good!
This will get a workout on the truck, hauler, and toys. Hope it works as well as it looks and feels. Seems to be of high quality. Quick shipping, good packaging....more info
