    I'm looking for a good tire guage. Price is not a consideration. I am so tired of buying junk. :baldy

    Must be able to accurately read 0-15# so that I can use it for the dirt bikes as well.

    I want one that can be carried in the back pack (compact).

    What have you guys found that is good and will last? :ear

    You answered your own question. Accugage low pressure/ATV gauge. Had mine for years, bought it from Terry at R&S. It was in stock! :D

    Bring it to the party tonight. I'll buy it!

    Is that the ones that you guys have with the long hose? I don't want to carry one of those.

    You can buy them with or without the hose. Same gauge Big Al is using. I think there are probably better gauges out there for more money, but the Accugage is probably the best one for minimal $$. Don't buy BikeMaster gauges...junk!

    Do you know if you guys have one at the shop?


    If you do, (without hose) could you pick me up one and I'll pay you tonight?

    I love internet shopping! :rofl

    Bump, is the accu-gauge still a quality product?

    I have been using a Slime brand gauge for a while. I have no idea of its accuracy.

    https://www.amazon.com/Slime-20185-Gauge-Bleeder-Valve/dp/B007OXHMUM

    I recently ordered a Jaco digital gauge but it would not read below 5psi, despite what the label on the box said. I contacted the company and they said 5 psi is the cut off. They said to use this gauge.

    https://www.amazon.com/JACO-Elite-Tire-Pressure-Gauge/dp/B01N9KAIR8/ref=sr_1_9?crid=3LVBUL7KQ2CZS&dchild=1&keywords=accu-gage+low+pressure+tire+gauge&qid=1593434350&sprefix=accu-gage,sporting,145&sr=8-9

    I am interested in trying to build a gauge testing system. I have a lot of gauges laying around and get different results all the time. I have a digital manometer that I am thinking about using as a baseline.

    Thanks for bringing this up. My `new`guage must be buried on my desk somewhere.

    Remember we had a whole thread of this awhile back. Last few times out I keep wondering why my old guages just suck. I wnat to say it was a guage from the dirt tracking crowd. Now I have to clean my office!

    Milton pencil type S-921 5-50psi if anyone needs one for regular all around use.
    Nothing better or more reliable.

    We need precise readings from 2.5 - 4.5 lbs.

    Yes I know. I just figured while the subject of tire gauges was happening I'd mention a gauge for " good all around use "
    Ok....back to your regularly scheduled program....

    I thought there must be more threads on gauges in here but this one from 2011 is the only that turned up in my search.

    5psi is way too high.


    Edit: I see your response. Yeah, I am specifically looking for trials related gauges.

    I have both Jitsie 0-15 for Trials bike and 0-30 for Enduro and Dual Sport bikes.
    I got mine at the Tryals Shop.

    So I found my old Accugauge in my main toolbox and set my pressures. 15 minutes later I found my new Longacre gauge that I have not used yet. The new gauge showed the accugauge was high by a pound. I am going with the new gauge readings.
