Large Readout Makes Display Optimal
on January 17, 2018
As I've gotten older, I find small digital readouts especially when I'm bent over, hard to read and decipher. This Michelin MN-12279 Digital Programmable Tire Pressure Gauge has a large readout with different readings for the front and rear tires. I have a new car but it has low profile tires (to me they look flat all the time) and coupled with my dashboard low-pressure tire indicator, I have to keep checking to see if there's enough air so I'm not riding on my rims.
I've used this Michelin Tire Gauge for a few months now and it is the best one I've ever had. For the most part, I've needed to check my tires when it is pitch black, not when it's a sunny bright time of day. Also, more often than not, the air/water machine at the stations are located in the darkest place on the lot so I've appreciated the LED light to read the pressure and to help screw on/off the tire caps. Now I don't have to hold a small flashlight in my mouth while trying to unscrew the caps.
Now this isn't any lightweight gauge - this looks small and lightweight but it is huge and is hefty. But I liked it being weighty - it felt comfortable when using it. So far so good. I would recommend this gauge as a great addition to your car's glove compartment or trunk.
