The AmazonBasics Programmable Digital Tire Gauge offers a number of useful features to make maintaining your car's tire pressure easy. In addition to a programmable memory for tire pressure settings, the unit features a large, lighted display, built-in flashlight, and a sturdy, zippered case.
Dimensions: 6.5" x 1.5" x 1" (LxWxD)
Always check your tires when they are cold (before you drive). Warm tires expand from heat and make the reading less accurate.
Tires typically lose 1-2 lbs. per month in cool months, more when it’s warm. It’s best to check them once a week, but do it at least every month. The features of the AmazonBasics tire gauge make checking your pressure even easier.
The AmazonBasics tire gauge allows you to set and store your tire manufacturer's recommended settings in its programmable memory. You can select and store PSI or BAR measurements, as well as settings for front and rear tires. Use the gauge to check your tire pressure, and the LCD display will show your current tire pressure next to your target air pressure. The gauge can measure pressure up to 99 PSI.
Even in dark conditions, you’ll be able to get the job done. A built in flashlight helps you find the tire valve and the large, bright, backlit LCD display clearly shows the current tire pressure.
The swivel head of the gauge makes it easier to take pressure readings from hard-to-reach valve stems.
Determine Your Recommended Tire Pressure
Look for a sticker on the inside of your driver's door or in your vehicle's manual for the manufacturer's suggested tire pressure. This is typically a number followed by PSI.
The tire pressures can be different for front tires versus rear tires.
Check Each Tire
For best results - test the tire pressure when your tires are cold (before you drive). Firmly press the tire gauge onto the valve stem and the tire pressure will display on the gauge.
If the number is higher than the manufacturer's recommended number; press the end of the valve stem to release the air and test again. Repeat until you reach your desired tire pressure.
If the number is lower than recommended. Add air and test again. Repeat until the target tire pressure is reached.
Replace The Valve Stem Cap
Repeat for each tire. When done. replace the valve stem caps.
Don't forget to check your spare tire too.

This works OK when you first get it... but without any serious use, a couple of years later when you pull it out of the console to use... batteries are dead. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amazon Customer

This is a great tire gauge in looks and accuracy-my gripe is with the construction. My first was sent back and replaced after 3-4 months after the head that connects to the valve... Read morePublished 5 months ago by James Y.
