    Recommendations for an acurate tyre pressure guage?

    I have benefitted twice from the TPMS on my Trophy - two puncture in a week!
    I keep the TPMS readout on the dash all the time, but I know they are not dead on accurate.
    Can anyone recommend a reliable and accurate tyre pressure gauge that I can use regularly while the tyres are cold?

    I just got a simple dial one from Halfords I think it was only around £10 and seems accurate when I have tested it on tyres after filling at a station... gives the same readings so seems good

    We're getting ever close to Airless tyres - so no more air & no more punctures! :018:

    That is spooky as I also had a puncture this week. Thursday and in the rear it was ok at 70 as the centrifugal force kept the tyre in shape. Slow down it was like a jelly  :005:

    Had it repaired and now going to put in puncture safe. Had this on my Tiger 955 and it was brilliant  :169: No I don't have Tyre Pressure sensors before you all cry no don't do it. And no I don't work for Puncture safe I just like what it does.  :028:

    It wasn't me !!

    I saw the airless tyres on a polaris ATV under test by the Army.  The tyres looked good and I asked if I get them for the ride on lawn mower but I thin they are a bit expensive at the moment and you probably will need new wheels.  Oh well soon?

    I recenty piked up a Slime digital at the auto parts store because I was down to one gauge (an Accu-Gage) due to discovering that 2 of the 3 I owned were giving terribly false pressures per the Accu-Gage and my compressor gauge.  I checked the tires with the Accu-Gage on the cage and it registered dead between 33 and 34 psi, and when I used the slime digital it read 33.5 psi.  I may carry the slime on the bike since it is so much smaller and lighter than the Accu-Gage.  The SUV doesn't really care how much weight I put in it.  Based on my one experience, I would consider the Slime a reasonably priced, reliable, choice.
