AmazonBasics Programmable Digital Tire Gauge
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)
Quick, Easy Pressure Monitoring
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.
Programmable Pressure Settings
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.
- Designed to measure tire pressure from 5 to 99 PSI
- Reach awkward angles with the swivel head
- Set and store your tire manufacturer's recommended settings
Built-In LED Flashlight and Backlit Display
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.
Checking Your Tires
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.
Top Customer Reviews
Once again, industry-standard Amazon.com customer satisfaction shines. On 7/3/2012, based upon reading my 1-star review, I was contacted by Amazon Executive Customer Relations who apologized for the faulty device and offered a free replacement or full refund. Since I already purchased a low-tech, traditional analog pressure gauge to replace this one a couple days ago, I accepted the refund. Regardless, Amazon customer service and buyer empathy takes all the risk out of AmazonBasics purchases and I won't hesitate to give another branded gadget a try next time. This is why so many of us are addicted to this incredible consumer retail experience. Greg

I have used digital, graduated stick type, and high accuracy dial type over the years. Each has it's advantages (although a stick type's only advantage is that it fits in your pocket easily, as they are not very accurate). But I like the combination of accuracy and ease of use provided by a good digital gauge. Easier to read, and often easier to use.
This gauge is the best I've ever had - at far below the price of some I've owned. It takes only seconds to register your pressure, which is displayed in large numbers with an illuminated back screen. It holds the reading for 10 seconds. The angle of the head and size of the unit are well designed, making it easier to make good contact with the valve stem than many others I've used (nothing I hate more than bleeding air while trying to get a good seal with a gauge). There is even a small LED flashlight feature that is useful if you are trying to work in the dark.
You can pre-set the desired pressures for your front and rear tires into the gauge to serve as a reminder. These setting don't actually perform any function (such as telling you how much over/under you are), which would be a nice design upgrade... but it is useful for those who don't easily remember the prescribed pressures.
The bleeder side of the head (used to let air out of the tires) is a little awkward to use, due to the angle. But it is still useful. The case for the gauge is actually very nice and zips closed.Read more ›
A solidly constructed tire gauge that is easy to use. In particular, it seems to grip the valve stem on the tire and does not slide off easily like other tire gauges I have used. My only concern is how accurate this gauge is. My other gauge, which is a standard analog dial gauge has seemed to match up closely with what the tire shop sets my pressure at with new tires. The Amazon digital gauge, however, reads 4.5 psi below what my other gauge reads. This is a pretty big discrepancy at 30 or 35 psi. I'm not sure which gauge has the accurate reading, or if both of them are inaccurate.
Another minor nit to pick is the description of how you can fine tune the pressure with an air bleed function. This function is just a little protrusion on the back of the gauge that you use to depress the valve stem on your tire and let out air. You have to stop taking the pressure, turn around the gauge, let out some air, turn the gauge around again and press it on the tire to read the pressure. On my old analog dial gauge there is a bleed valve that you activate by pressing a button while the gauge is still on the tire. This is easier and faster.
I've owned an Accutire MS-4000 for over 10 years, and it finally gave out. I liked it and it worked well, but was always a little touchy when sealing up to the valve stem. I looked on Amazon and read all the reviews of gauges, carefully reading the negatives, and then came across this one. Could someone have finally made a well-designed digital gauge? Especially one with all glowing reviews? I decided to take a chance on it, and so far I'm glad I did!
It appears well-made, and right away, the metal swivel head beats the Accutire hands down. It seals perfectly and is much easier to place on the stem. I didn't have any trouble using the bleeder on it either. The display is very easy to read and stays lit long enough for me to go from tire to tire.
As for the memory function, that's not a selling point for me, and I didn't even bother to pre-set them for my tires. I know what pressures I want to run, and this feature doesn't help me. I'm not saying it's a bad feature, just one I'll never use.
I don't know who Amazon partnered with (or contracted out to) to make this gauge, but I'd say it was quite successful. I'll probably be buying a few of these as gifts for family and friends, considering how easy they are to use and how well they work.

I received this as a gift and it worked at first, however today I was caught in a snow storm with a flat tire. The spare was flat as well and I pulled out the gauge and my pump. Read morePublished 9 days ago by M. Schulman

Worked great for about a year but then just quit displaying the pressure even through the LED lamp still works, so I guess the screen died or something. Very sad :(Published 3 months ago by Jeff S.
It is accurate and consistent. I've had it for more than a year and it's still working. Small flashlight is nice, but LCD backlight is a plus.Published 4 months ago by Inches

Can store your cars front and rear psi recommendations for easy lookup when checking pressures.
