This digital tire gauge is made by Accutire and is the same as their model MS 4751WC. I purchased this gauge because it is the only one I have found that measures to the Tenth of a pound. I do not like gauges that measure to a half of pound, rounding up or down. The Michelin has a nice feel in your hand and the dial is large and easy to read, even when it is dark, due to the illumination. I compared it to other quality gauges and found it to be very accurate. it comes in a very nice zippered case. If you want an accurate, easy to use and read gauge this is the one.

I should have read the customer reviews before ordering this "Gold Box Deal" Michelin Tire Gauge. Just as other one star reviews also reported, the gauge arrives with dead batteries. New batteries also will die within very short order because the Michelin tire gauge autos on and off. If left in your car (where else would you keep it?) the simple act of motoring about will jiggle the on-off switch enough to quickly drain the batteries.

The basic functions of the unit are good. It reads tire pressure accurately to 1/10ths of a pound which is much more accurate and better than most standard pressure gauges. However its programmable functions are unnecessarily complicated and its too easy to change key settings during normal pressure checks which is a huge flaw. You should not be able to, while checking tire pressure, to be able to accidentally change between PSI and BAR readings. Which is exactly what happened to me the second time I used the unit. This basically rendered the unit useless and without the instructions at hand there was no comprehensible labeling or buttons on the unit to change back.
In retrospect I would have purchased one of the more accurate clock type pressure gauges instead of this digital model because of its ridiculous complexity and inscrutable interface. I cannot recommend this unit you shouldnt have to read 10 pages of small type to use the basic functions of a tire pressure gauge, digital or not.

Excellent guage. The only thing missing is a button to release pressure from the tire if it is overinflated.

This gauge is the same as the MSI Accutire MS-4751WC Digital Programmable Tire Gauge. I think the "preset" buttons on both these gauges just get in the way, so I prefer the Accutire MS-5510B Racing Tire Gauge -- now that its bugs(!) seem to be worked out.

This item's price stays at list rather than getting discounted like the Accutire equivalent. (I bought mine because the Accutire one was "no longer available", and I wanted to try this form factor in case they were discontinuing it.) If you want a Michelin logo, go for it. But perhaps you might buy the Accutire one AND buy a cute little Michelin Brand 12273 "Michelin Man" Digital Tire Gauge with the savings!

Though my first one did not work, Amazon's outstanding return policy resulted in an exchange for one that did. This gauge is well constructed and looks like it would stand up to severe use. It has a very clear display that is really easy to read and appears to be extremely accurate. after using it now for a considerable length of time, I decided to increase my rating to 5 stars. After having cataract surgery, my ability to read without glasses became close to impossible. The display on this gauge is so large that I can read it without glasses. I have found that it is, in fact, extremely accurate.

This is one of those gadgets you can't believe you didn't buy years ago. Sturdy, good grip, easy to use. Quick and easy to get a reading with little or no air leak. Programming may be useful but....what if you have more than one vehicle? Large, lit display is great in a dark garage. No more squinting at some tiny numbers and reading again and again to double check yourself (Yes, I'm talking about those cheap, stupid pen-type gauges). Replacing batteries is a price I'm willing to pay. Protective case is a great idea to prevent scratching up the display.

When it comes to dealing with cars, I am a newbie. I don't know how to measure tire pressure. When I saw this, I thought it can't get simpler and ordered it. So, recently when I got a chance to use it, it was easy to get the tire pressure easily. However, the problem is the inside tip of this device which is pushed against the tire valve is broken. The real problem is that the tire value has a metal needle and this tire gauge has a plastic nozzle and when you try to push the gauge tight against the valve, it can easily break and that's what happened to me.
