Moroso Tire Pressure Gauge 89560 0-60 PSI Review

Moroso offers dependable, race proven tire pressure gauges that are individually calibrated and optimized for performance. There’s a reason racers worldwide use Moroso! One such highly rated analog tire pressure gauge option is the Moroso 89560 Tire Pressure Gauge 0-60 PSI.

Features

  • 0-60 PSI
  • 2.625″ diameter dial face
  • 15.5″ length hose
  • Calibrated for accuracy within 2%
  • Hardened swivel chuck end rotates 360º
  • Air pressure release valve for precision settings
  • Easy to read 1/2 lb increments on dial face
  • Angle chuck end

Pros

The Moroso 89560 is well built like most other Moroso products. The tire gauge dial face is easy to read and does have nice big bold numbers. Of course, being able to rotate the gauge 360º on the hose is very convenient when trying to read the gauge while holding the chuck end on the sometimes difficult to reach valve stem.

Having an air pressure release (or bleed) valve is obviously critical for a precision tire pressure setting. This particular mechanism on the Moroso 89560 is not unlike competitors and functions just the same. The hose is rated to 300 PSI and feels more than adequate for holding up to the demands of the race track. At a weight of 12.8 oz this tire gauge is right on par with competing models and won’t be a hinderance to manage. That said, it’s also heavy enough to feel like it was constructed with quality components.

There is a 90 day limited warranty on the Moroso 89560 and it seems pretty standard. Reading through the documentation, it’s the standard legal jargon one would expect to find. (Return with sales receipt, clearly state the defective issue, warranty doesn’t cover damage sustained to anything other than the gauge itself, etc.)

Cons

Well, I do see a few things that stand out. Firstly, there is no protective covering for the gauge itself out of the package. Moroso makes a gauge cover but that is sold separately. For this model 89560, the gauge cover can be found here. Most competing products will include a protective covering and it’s somewhat disappointing that one must spend another $10-15 for the cover.

It’s hard to say with absolute certainty, but the dial face covering seems to be a bit flimsy and probably easy to scuff up and mar. It’s unlikely this is made of glass and reading through some of the other negative reviews on the Amazon product page it seems others have experienced a lot of scratching and cracking.

Another point to consider is that the dial face doesn’t have glow in the dark digits nor does it offer a backlight feature. Now, at a dimly lit track or when used in the evening, that can be troublesome for anyone with poor eyesight.

One last con for me is that this gauge doesn’t come with a ball chuck. I do personally prefer the angle chuck but it’s sometimes more convenient to swap in the ball chuck depending on the tire. There are plenty of competing products which offer the dual chuck ends and at this price point it’d be nice to see that from Moroso.

Longacre Racing Tire Pressure Gauge Model 52001 Review

Recognized for their dedication in providing quality products, Longacre is an established brand name in the racing industry. They are well known for their innovation and customer satisfaction as well as their comprehensive line of racing gauges and other products. One such quality racing gauge is the Longacre 52001 Tire Gauge!

Longacre 52001 Tire Gauge
List Price: $79.99
Price: $79.99
You Save: N/A

Features

  • Huge 3.5″ display for high accuracy and easier readability.
  • Glow-in-the-dark dial face for better viewing in dimly lit conditions.
  • Gauge bumper surrounding gauge dial face for protection.
  • Dual air pressure release buttons.
  • Swivel angle chuck installed with alternate ball chuck included.
  • Holds pressure reading until released.
  • Internal gauge damper for more consistent, accurate readings.
  • Flexible 17″ red hose.
  • Silver storage case for protection when not in use.

Pros

Immediately noticeable is the massive 3.5″ dial face which is extremely easy to read with the large printed numbers and glow-in-the-dark display. Consequently, this gauge face is almost a full inch larger than most of the gauges I’ve reviewed. The dial scale has easily distinguishable hash lines marking the single and half increments in between each bolded number. Given the large size of the dial face, the readability and precision of the indicator arrow is far superior to other analog gauges.

This large dial face is protected by a rugged, rubber-feeling bumper which certainly feels more than adequate to protect the inner workings of the gauge should it be called to task. Speaking of protection, this gauge also comes with its very own carrying case. That’s definitely an added bonus but at this price point it’s somewhat expected. The case will not only ensure extended life of the gauge but also help keep the components clean when not in use.

Another feature of this gauge is the dual air pressure release buttons located directly below the gauge face. The first button down from the gauge is the “bleed” valve, or the button to push when connected to the valve stem in order to release air from the tire. The second button down is the air release valve. After releasing the chuck from the valve stem, the pressure reading will be held at the measured PSI. Pushing the second pressure release button will reset the gauge to zero PSI.

According to the manufacturer, this Magnum series model 52001 tire gauge is accurate within 2% of the measured reading. Meaning, a 0-60 PSI gauge is accurate within 1 PSI of the pressure reading. Accuracy, of course, is of utmost importance in any tire gauge but especially for a racing gauge.

Cons

The Longacre model 52001 tire pressure gauge weighs in at a whopping 3 lbs, considerably heavier than a lot of other gauges. Personally, the weight doesn’t bother me because I believe this reflects a durable and well made product constructed with quality components. But, there are some comments out there stating that after extended use the gauge becomes a bit cumbersome because of the weight.

Another possible drawback is that this gauge is not liquid filled. Liquid filled gauges tend to be a bit more accurate because they won’t allow the indicator arrow to vibrate as much within the dial face. That said, this particular gauge has an internal gauge damper built into it for more consistent, accurate readings.

Verdict

Reviewing my post above I’m finding far more pros than cons. Comparing that to the Amazon listing of this item I also see that this item at the time of publishing this post is 4.9 out of 5 stars with 30 customer reviews. That’s pretty solid even if there’s only 30 customer reviews to date. I say that because of those 30 reviews, 93% of them are 5 star ratings. So, ultimately, I find this item to be well worth the money and recommendable.

The Longacre Magnum series has 4 PSI options. The option reviewed above is the 0-60 PSI by 1/2 lb increments model #52001.

In the interest of providing the best information quickly and easily I’ve broken down the Tire Gadget’s selections for best digital tire pressure gauges into three categories. In my view it’s important to distinguish three different levels because what works for advanced tire gauge users may not be the best, or most affordable, for common everyday or average type gauge users. As with most products, the tire gauge you choose will vary greatly depending on your intended usage level and what will serve your needs the best.

Therefore, I’ve broken down the best digital tire gauge choices by:

  • Best Basic Tire Gauges
  • Best Next Level Tire Gauges
  • Best Advanced Tire Gauges

So, what exactly qualifies these particular selections as the best digital tire gauges? Simply, these choices are not only highly ranked but are also top selections in Amazon’s best seller categories for Tire Gauges and Tire Repair Tools. I’ve done a fair amount of research on each of these selections (See my review for each item) and have chosen what I feel are best suited for this post. I’ll be updating the post frequently as dictated by the best seller category listings. Know that I’m certainly open to hearing your opinions on the matter as well. Just leave a comment below! Keep in mind this post is specific to digital tire pressure gauges.

Best Digital Tire Gauge – Basic Level Options

Let’s first look at the best basic tire gauges. These two choices will be cost effective, easy to operate, and are great at doing one thing very well – reading tire pressure. Both options here are on Amazon’s best seller’s list for Digital Tire Pressure Gauges and each have over 500 reviews. As you can see by the ratings, they both score very well on the star scale. Overall, the great majority of people purchasing these gauges have been very satisfied.

Here we’ll review the features of the four selections for the middle range digital tire gauge options. Tire Gadget’s pick in this next level digital tire gauge category is the Craftsman option. What really appeals to me with this choice is that it’s programmable where you can enter the desired tire pressure and the gauge will remember this setting for both front and rear tires. A very handy function to have in order to avoid constantly referring to a vehicle owner’s manual, the door jamb sticker or dirty sidewall of a tire for the recommended tire PSI. But, remember, all these options are on the best seller’s list so it’s all about finding the right gauge for your needs.


1. YUMSEEN High Accuracy Digital Tire Pressure Gauge 150 PSI

  • Robust, impact resistant display face with protective rubber cover.
  • LCD blue backlit digital display for superior readability.

Best Digital Tire Gauges – Advanced Level Options

And finally we have the two advanced tire pressure gauge options. Yes, they cost a bit of money, there’s no getting around it. But if you buy into the idea that you get what you pay for then you should be very happy with these selections. As added peace of mind, they are also on the best seller’s lists within Amazon and have both been positively reviewed and rank well on the star scale. Generally speaking these have the same features as the mid-level options listed above, but the features are enhanced. For instance, the Dan’s Auto digital gauge will read up to 300 PSI.

Tire Pressure Gauge Digital w: Metal Body 150PSI with scales

A palm sized digital tire pressure gauge that is both simple to use and easy to store. Constructed with a heavy duty die cast casing for durability, this gauge is ergonomically designed to fit within any sized hand. Let’s take a look at the Ionox Digital Tire Pressure Gauge w/ Metal Body 150PSI item number ION-15S. 

Features

  • Heavy duty die cast casing for durability and protection.
  • Ergonomically designed to fit large and small sized hands.
  • Blue LED nozzle to light up dimly lit areas.
  • Backlit display screen for easy visibility.
  • Measures four (4) pressure scales: PSI, BAR, KPa, and Kg/cm².
  • Black non-slip rubberized grips.
  • Batteries included.

Pros

A single push button keeps operation of this tire gauge very simple. Press the button once to turn the unit on and press the button again to change from PSI to any of four pressure scales. Press and hold the button to turn the gauge off. This is all pretty straight forward and what I like is that I’m able to actually turn the unit off by pressing and holding the button.

Having a button to turn the unit off isn’t always the case in competing models. Competing models commonly have only an auto-off feature which means there isn’t a way to manually power off the unit. This unit does have that function as well. However, in the case of the ION-15S you can either press and hold the button to turn the unit off or you can wait 30 seconds for the digital display to turn itself off.

Taking a tire pressure measurement is instant and easy to read on the digital display. This gauge will take a pressure reading as low as .5 PSI and will output measurements in .5 lb increments. The die cast metal casing seems very solid and should be durable for normal wear and tear. It’s also a very light gauge at 4 ounces. A lighted nozzle end is also an added bonus when using the gauge at night or in dimly lit conditions.

Cons

Left handed users will have a difficult time with this gauge because using the gauge in your left hand will cover up the display (and the power button). That’s the case with almost all digital tire gauges that have two flat sides, however. If you’re a left handed user, you might check out this gauge instead.

Several reviewers on Amazon also claim to have had a difficult time properly fitting the nozzle end over the valve stem. Or, in some instances, having to apply more than normal pressure on the gauge for the PSI reading to be measured. It’s tough to say exactly what conditions these people were experiencing which lead to difficulty using this gauge. I’m not saying these people didn’t experience a problem but I will point out that these reviewers only represent less than half of the one star reviews. At the time of this post, there are 26 one star reviews of 513 total reviews.

Accuracy is also something a few reviewers found to be less than adequate. Although the manufacturer doesn’t make any specific accuracy claims about the ION-15S, most digital gauges will claim to be accurate within 2-3% of the measured PSI. It’s also worth noting that every tire pressure gauge I’ve reviewed has always received comments about inaccuracy. I haven’t come across one tire gauge yet that hasn’t received negative feedback about accuracy.

Verdict

It won’t break the bank to purchase, it’s simple to operate, and will fit conveniently in storage compartments of your vehicle. It also currently has a 4.5 of 5 star rating with over 500 customer reviews. So obviously there far more satisfied customers than unsatisfied. Are there better tire gauges out there? Sure… at two or more times the money. But to have the simplicity of a digital gauge I’ll take this offering from Ionox over a stick (or pencil) type gauge any day.

The Ionox Digital Tire Pressure Gauge w/ Metal Body 150 PSI is on the best digital tire pressure gauge list. See the full list here!

Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge 300 PSI

An impressive digital tire gauge, the Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge 300 PSI is a high quality, mechanic grade tool built for the professional. Constructed from stainless steel and military grade rubber, expect the best performance possible when checking tire pressure on cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs and motorcycles.

Features

  • Large 2.5″ LCD viewing window backlit for easy readability.
  • Four selectable scales. (PSI, KG/CM², BAR, kPa)
  • High quality stainless steel construction.
  • Military grade rubber casing protecting gauge.
  • Test rated and certified to read up to 300 PSI.
  • Accurate within +/- 1%.
  • Rotating 360º gauge and chuck end for ultimate ease of use.
  • Angle and long chuck ends included.
  • 100% LIFETIME GUARANTEE!

Here’s a video I found on YouTube talking about the specifics of this gauge:

Pros

This is a very high quality, mechanic grade, professional digital tire gauge. If you’re looking for the best, this is a very solid choice. What really appeals is the solid construction and protective military grade casing surrounding the digital gauge. The unit weighs in at 1.2 lbs so it’s heavier than a lot of other digital gauges you’ll find but that’s because it’s built with stainless steel and uses high quality components.

The bright LCD display features very easy to read numbers and a battery scale on the right side of the screen. There are no issues trying to view this display in low light or dimly lit conditions. Simply press the “ON” button and the screen lights up nice and bright. Use this same button to turn the unit off once you’re done using it to help preserve battery life.

Furthermore, the Dan’s Auto Digital Pressure Gauge comes with three (3) quality AAA batteries. They recommend changing these every 12 months but with the battery life indicator on the right side of the display you’ll know ahead of time if the batteries need to be replaced. This is a nice feature since many lower end digital gauges do not come equipped with a battery life indicator.

Also a cut above the competition is that this gauge will read up to 300 PSI. This means it can be used with a variety of tires – from those found on your every day commuter vehicle to large trucks and RVs. The gauge is also extremely accurate at +/- 1% which is a much tighter delta than other digital gauges I’ve reviewed.

Cons

Very few. However, much like every gauge I’ve reviewed there are comments left on the Amazon product page that describe inaccurate pressure readings. The specific circumstances which these purchasers experienced are unknown but improper usage could be to blame. Or, possibly, their gauge was faulty. Tough to know exactly. It’s only a small percentage of people who have left comments indicating an issue with the pressure readings and overall it seems the majority of people are satisfied.

Other negative feedback from a handful of purchasers was the lack of instruction. The above video, if you took a few minutes to view it, walks through in pretty good detail how to operate this gauge. If you were to purchase this gauge and needed some assistance, this video may help provide some insight.

Verdict

When purchasing this gauge you receive an e-book detailing several points regarding tire pressure. Not a bad bonus. Additionally, this gauge comes with two separate chuck ends: an angle and extended length that are easily swapped in and out. What’s more, the Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge comes with a 100% lifetime guarantee! This is great peace of mind and is obviously a true sign of a manufacturer standing behind its product. For these reasons as well as the overall quality the Dans Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge is a recommendable product.

The Dan’s Auto Digital Tire Pressure Gauge 300 PSI is on the best digital tire pressure gauge list

Simplicity is the key with the Accutire MS-4021B. It really doesn’t get any easier than this gauge. Press the nozzle to the valve stem and out pops your pressure reading. Visually it appears somewhat awkward looking at first but it’s actually quite nice having the nozzle offset approximately 45º off the handle. This is because you can use the back of the display section (silver/beige colored area on the image above) to press your thumb against once engaged to the valve stem.

The handle is rubber coated and provides a comfortable grip. It has a nice smooth finish and is lightweight at 0.6 ounces. This gauge also has an auto-off feature so after a few seconds of no use the unit will shut off on its own. Obviously it’s always nice having a battery preserving feature on any digital device, the Accutire MS-4021B included.

Cons

Since the digital display is red numbers on a black background, this can be visually challenging in certain light conditions. On a bright day especially, trying to discern the reading on the display is a bit troublesome.

Speaking of display, many of the negative reviews are complaints about the short display time after taking a pressure reading. The digital display lasts about 3 seconds and for some people this was too short. Conserving battery life is likely the reasoning behind a short display time and this function cannot be adjusted to lengthen the time of display.

Regarding the batteries, several of the negative reviews are comments about short battery life or the batteries being dead on arrival. This is a very common theme among digital tire gauges in general because they all rely on a battery. I cannot think of even one digital tire gauge I’ve reviewed (and I’ve reviewed several) where there hasn’t been a mention of poor battery life or poor battery quality. It seems, unfortunately, that a battery powered tire gauge will always have these types of questions anc concerns.

Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the elephant in the room… Accuracy. Many of the negative reviews centered on this topic. The gauge claims to be accurate within “+/- 1% + .5” since it displays in .5 PSI increments. A lot of customer reviews challenge this accuracy but, again, this is a common argument for any tire gauge, not just this particular selection. My stance is this; if you are truly concerned about being within a small tolerance (e.g. +/- 1%) of your tire’s recommended pressure, then you should probably be looking at a different gauge that is at a much higher price point.  Like this one here for example.

Verdict

This model gauge has been available since 2005 so it passes the test of time. Based on its longevity on Amazon and the lengthy list of verified purchases one can only conclude that you’re getting what you pay for. And that is a cost effective, serviceable digital tire gauge that will provide a few years worth of tire pressure readings. It’s simple to use, hassle-free, and will fit in most compartments within your vehicle.

There are over 3,300 reviews at the time of this post and approximately 87% of those are positive. The accuracy questions brought forward in a large portion of the negative reviews gives me slight pause, however, one also needs to consider all the positive reviews and 4.4 of 5 star rating. For my money, if my objective was to find a tire gauge for personal vehicle usage that fits the budget and will work when needed, the Accutire MS-4021B would be worthy of consideration.

Michelin Digital Programmable Tire Gauge A programmable gauge that fits in the palm of your hand or conveniently in a storage compartment. Getting an accurate tire pressure reading is quick and easy with the Michelin MN-12279 Digital Programmable Tire Gauge! Use the programming functionality to enter the desired pressure for quick comparison between the measured reading and the desired reading.

Features

  • Programmable Tire Gauge. Set desired pressure for both front and rear tires.
  • White LED flashlight.
  • Storage pouch included.
  • Display reads to within 0.1 PSI.
  • Bright, backlit digital display screen.
  • Rubberized soft grip and die cast aluminum housing.
  • Gauge accuracy is +/- 1%. 

Pros

What jumps out to me right away is that the body of this gauge is aluminum. Not that you want to ever drop your tire gauge, especially a digital model, but this feature certainly adds a durability component. Combined with the soft rubber grip, this comfort feature also helps to insulate the gauge when knocked around.

Also included with the purchase of this tire pressure gauge is a storage case. This added bonus helps ensure the long term security of the product. A lot of the competing models you’ll find in this price range do not include a case. This add-on is certainly a nice selling point.

The bright display is large and easy to read. In my estimation, the display screen is approximately the size of a silver dollar coin. You will have no issues spotting this screen in the dark of night or dimly lit garage. I like the “Low”, “OK”, and “High” air pressure indicator at the top of the display as well. With this indicator it’s easy at quick glance to know how far or how close to the desired preset pressure you are.

Cons

Rather disappointing is the lack of air pressure release (aka bleed) valve. There are handheld digital gauges in the same price range (see the Craftsman MS4376) as the Michelin MN-12279 that offer this feature so I’d like to have seen that incorporated. Also important to think about is that the digital display is only on one side of the unit. If you operate the gauge with your right hand, you’ll have no issue viewing the display. However, if you operate the gauge with your left hand, you’ll cover the display while taking a pressure reading.

On the Amazon product page for this item, there are many older reviews that mention poor battery life. As with any digital gauge, battery life will always be one drawback when going with this style tire gauge. Replacing the battery seems simple enough (unscrew and remove top cover, replace batteries with CR 2032 3V) but there’s always the cost of new batteries to be concerned with. Especially if you’re buying new ones every couple months.

Another interesting piece to this battery puzzle is that several people claim the gauge turns itself on when inside the case. Whether that be from getting jostled around while the vehicle is moving or if the gauge fits so snuggly inside the case that buttons are pressed, a number of people mentioned this occurring. If I experienced this issue, maybe I wouldn’t use the case.

Verdict

The bright display and included LED flashlight are good add-ons but those features will be claimed on a lot of digital handheld gauges. I do like the ergonomic shape, that’s one difference between this gauge and competing models that I appreciate. And the aluminum casing with comfort grip edge is better than most. Overall, I think it’s a recommendable item but I’d like to see more from Michelin in regard to the battery issue. To be fair, however, many of the commenting purchasers stating battery issues were from 2+ years ago. It’s possible later models have had this matter addressed.

The Michelin MN-12279 Digital Programmable Tire Gauge is a top rated tire pressure gauge. Click here to see Tire Gadgets list of all top rated tire pressure gauges.

How To Check Tire Pressure Article

The task of checking tire pressure is one of the most important and at the same time, most often overlooked regular car maintenance procedures. In order to ensure that your car keeps you safe on the road, there is a need for proper tire maintenance. Incorrect tire pressure can lead to a tire blow-out, uneven tire wear, and poor gas mileage. You are certain to get the most out of your tires when you treat them well.

Learning how to check tire pressure will not only help your vehicle’s performance on the road but will also go a long way in helping to keep you and your family safe at all times. Here is what you need to do.

  • Read through the tire information for your vehicle to know your tires recommended air pressure. This can be found in your vehicle owner’s manual, which will likely be in your glove box or in the driver’s door ledge or doorframe.
  • Check the tire pressure when your tires are normal ambient temperature. This can be done right before you drive your car or at least 3 hours after driving it. Cold inflation pressure is the recommended pressure.
  • Remember to check the air pressure of all your vehicle’s tires – even the spare tire. It is important to note that your tire pressure can be affected by changes in outdoor temperature. Tire pressure should be checked at least every month.

How To Use A Tire Pressure Gauge

If you do not know how to use a tire pressure gauge, then you can’t properly measure your tire pressure. Note that there are a variety of different tire pressure gauges that can be used to measure the air pressure of your tire. It’s important to always keep your preferred equipment in your vehicle at all times to ensure regular tire pressure checks can occur easily and frequently.

Using A Stick (or Pen) Type Gauge

Most stick type tire pressure gauges feature black notches on a white rod to enhance the ease of reading PSI measurements. Approximately the size of a pen, this conventional style tire gauge typically has a metal exterior with a plastic rod that will stretch out when the end is attached to a valve stem.

To effectively use this type of pressure gauge, you will have to:

  • Unscrew the valve stem cap.
  • Press the open end of the gauge evenly onto the valve stem.
  • Note that a hissing sound signifies that air is escaping from the tire.
  • Ensure a firm hold on the gauge at the stem.
  • Once engaged, the plastic rod from within the gauge will stretch out.
  • Where the rod stops, this will be the PSI measurement of the tire.

When you attach the air gauge to your tire, carefully watch how the rod extends and notice where it stops extending. Note that your reading is presented in whole numbers and not decimals. For instance, if the rod extends to a large 2 and a small 9, then your reading is 29 PSI, not 2.9 PSI.

Using Analog (or Dial) Type Gauges

The dial gauge is a popular instrument to use especially when it comes to measuring the tire pressure of a bike, truck, motorcycle, car, ATV, RV or SUV. As a standard for most gas stations, this mechanical gauge can help alert tire technicians or car owners of any inconsistencies with their pneumatic tires.

Analog gauges are both durable and easy to operate. They also offer fast and accurate measurements of tire pressure. However, before you can achieve accurate results with these tire gauges, you have to understand how they work. It’s alwo important to know how to rightly use of them.

It is important to know that measuring tire pressure takes more than simply knowing how to use a tire pressure gauge. The scale displayed on the analog dial face consists of graduations commonly presented in single increments in which every 10th number is bolded for easy reading. Once engaged with the valve, the pointer moves to indicate the amount of air pressure.

To operate this type of gauge:

  • Create a tight airless seal by pressing the chuck end onto the valve stem.
  • The reading is displayed on the gauge face with the pointer aimed at the pressure reading.
  • Apply more pressure to the chuck if you hear a hissing sound. This “hissing” signifies air is escaping from the tire.
  • An integrated hold valve, if equipped, will keep the reading once removing the chuck from the valve stem.
  • To take another measurement, use the pressure release button to reset the gauge.

Using Digital Type Gauges

Recent advancements in digital technology have greatly helped to improve the standard of tire pressure gauges. Now, it’s simpler to get a tire pressure reading by using a digital gauge. For the most accurate results, digital gauges are recommended. This is because, generally, a digital gauge will read down to 1/2 PSI or smaller. If accuracy is of utmost importance to you, then a digital gauge is probably your best solution.

Featuring an electronic LCD display, the digital gauge clearly indicates measurement reading on a digital display screen. Apart from its ability to provide instant, accurate, and easy-to-read measurements, the digital gauge will often times include a backlit screen for better viewing.

Operate a digital type gauge as follows:

  • Turn on the device and press it against the valve stem of the tire.
  • While you depress it, ensure to hold it there firmly as to not allow air to escape.
  • Remember to apply additional pressure to the gauge if you hear air escaping from the valve.
  • Continue to press it, until the hissing sound stops and the reading is taken.
  • The tire pressure reading will be shown on the electronic LCD display.
  • Retighten the valve cap if the pressure reading is correct.

No doubt, digital tire gauges present the easiest and most accurate way to maintain the right pressure in your car tire. Be sure to check out Tire Gadgets’ best tire gauge options!

Nitrogen filled tires

Using only nitrogen to inflate tires is a relatively new idea. Introduced around 2006, the theory was brought forward as a means to save money by increasing fuel economy. This is because nitrogen is an inert gas, meaning it’s a property free, non-reactive substance. Whereas regular air is 79% nitrogen, 20% oxygen and approximately 1% other compounds. It’s this 20% oxygen in air that creates an issue for inflated tires.

Oxygen, as you’ll recall from your chemistry classes, has this tendency to oxidize when combined with other molecules. And this oxidation is very troublesome and destructive. Do you have rust on your car? That’s from oxidation! And this oxidation is a very big threat to things composed of steel and rubber such as your car frame, axle and wheel components or rubber on your tires.

Benefits Of Nitrogen In Tires

It would be impossible, however, for oxidation to occur in your tires if filled with nitrogen only. Since nitrogen is oxygen free, water or condensation cannot form within a tire. In other words, if there is no oxygen then we are without the possibility of oxidation. If there’s no oxidation, then there’s no rust and corrosion possible. Or, in the case of rubber tires, if there is no oxidation then there is no tire rot.

It’s safe to say that nitrogen in tires is beneficial. Several experiments by tire manufacturers have proved that tires filled with air only seemed to fluctuate in pressure. This was mostly due to temperature fluctuations. While these same types of experiments with nitrogen-filled tires, the pressure changes due to temperature are hardly noticeable.

Nitrogen And Better Fuel Economy

As it pertains to better fuel consumption, the benefits experienced by having nitrogen in tires is based on nitrogen having larger molecules compared to oxygen. Having smaller molecules, oxygen is far more likely to pass through the tires a lot easier and faster than the larger nitrogen molecules. This process is called permeation and is far less probable with nitrogen filled tires.

By using oxygen (or air), the vehicle owner is more likely to have underinflated tires much sooner. This will ultimately lead to producing poor gas mileage and here’s why. If a tire is underinflated, the tire tends to flatten out creating more surface area touching the roadway. When this occurs, more friction is created. And more friction equals more resistance. More resistance equals more fuel being used to power the car down the road.

Other Benefits Of Nitrogen vs Air In Tires

Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems are electrical devices, so water and moisture shouldn’t be near them. Nitrogen is a friendly and compatible ally with systems like these since nitrogen is entirely dry. Condensation and moisture cannot occur with nitrogen filled tires.

Most tires are equipped with steel belts that can rust due to water moisturization. In most cases, the damage is not visible outside. This is commonly unnoticed and the damage may already be extensive underneath the tire’s surface.

Nitrogen is also incombustible, this means that it is safer to have nitrogen-filled tires in the event of a fire. This is opposed to oxygen that encourages fire. The natural chemical components of nitrogen also reduce impurities that may be present in the tire’s interior. This is an advantageous ability since contaminants can sometimes cause clogs or trigger punctures and leaks.

Another notable benefit of nitrogen in tires is the fact that it can withstand extreme winter temperatures. This provides better handling and control for the driver even in winter months. There are also pressure changes that can occur even when using nitrogen. Though these changes were observed to be far less troublesome than with compressed air.

Potential Drawbacks To Nitrogen Filled Tires

Nitrogen filled tires can lose about 1.5-2 psi in an average span of 3 or 4 months. Tires with compressed air, on the other hand, can lose this much pressure in just one month. Nevertheless, regularly checking the tire pressure is still a must with nitrogen filled tires. Ensuring properly inflated tires is critical for safe driving regardless if tires are filled with nitrogen or air. See Tire Gadgets list of best tire gauges to help you find the right tool for checking your tire pressure.

Depending on your location, nitrogen can also cost a few bucks more to put in your tires while air is virtually free. Sometimes this nitrogen-fill service comes with free refills. However, that means you’ll need to go back to the selling location each time a refill is needed. It’s also possible that there could be a charge for nitrogen refills, anywhere from $2-$10 per tire.

How To Put Nitrogen In Your Tires

The method used in filling tires with nitrogen is done by initially purging the tires to get rid of existing air. This is also done to eradicate any present moisture brought by condensation. The tires are then filled with nitrogen in much the same way as standard air. Nitrogen is pumped into the tire until the desired pressure is met. Once the pressure is brought to the recommended PSI, the valve cap is replaced and the tire is ready for the road.

It’s best not to fill your tires with nitrogen at home without sufficient knowledge of the procedure. Only tire professionals with prior experience and capabilities know how to put nitrogen in tires and will have the correct tools available to do so.

Craftsman Programmable Digital Tire Gauge Review

Check your tire pressure conveniently and easily with the Craftsman Programmable Digital Tire Gauge, model number MS4376. Using the programmable functionality with this tire gauge, set the target PSI for your specific vehicle and the gauge will store this information. No more paging through owners manuals or squinting to see dirty tire sidewalls, this gauge will store the recommended tire pressure for both front and rear tires.

Features

  • Will read measurements between 5 and 99 PSI.
  • Programmable function will store front and rear PSI targets.
  • Straight-push nozzle for easy fitting onto valve stems.
  • Air pressure release (bleed) capabilities.
  • Large backlit display for easy viewing.
  • Includes white LED flashlight at nozzle end.
  • Batteries included.

Pros

The Craftsman MS4376 has an ergonomically shaped handle that fits comfortably in your hand. With a straight-push nozzle, it’s very simple to fit the end of this gauge on a valve stem with little effort. Compared to other gauges that have an angled nozzle, this gauge is a lot less awkward to use on a standard car tire. This tire gauge is obviously bigger than a standard pen style gauge but it will still easily fit in a glove compartment or other storage location in your vehicle.

Especially helpful is the large, backlit display. The numbers are very clear and easy to read. When operating the gauge, the display will show both the current PSI reading and the target PSI reading. The current reading will display on the top of the screen while the bottom half of the display shows the target. Remember, however, that this target PSI assumes the gauge owner has properly entered the recommended PSI for both front and rear tires.

On the nozzle end of the gauge is also a white LED light. This serves as a flashlight to brighten up any dimly lit workspace. Hopefully you don’t experience any nighttime tire pressure issues but if you do this additional feature is certainly nice to have. Furthermore, the gauge comes with a pressure release trigger. In the case of an over inflated tire, this attribute will allow you to bleed air out of the tire.

Cons

As with all digital type tire gauges, eventually the batteries will need to be replaced. Some purchasers found their gauge to last only 6 months or shorter before the batteries were dead. Although not typical, this is definitely a concern assuming normal usage and conditions. The batteries that come with this gauge should last much longer than that. To replace the batteries, on the underside of the unit are a couple of small screws that need to be removed. Once removed, the gauge will need two (2) CR2032 replacements. Very straightforward to replace.

Other people purchasing this tire gauge found the accuracy to be off. In my opinion, accuracy of any tire gauge is always the number one complaint. This is true for any review on the Tire Gadgets website, whether it’s a digital or analog gauge, accuracy is always questioned by at least a few. Even the gauges that claim supreme accuracy, like less than a tenth of a unit, will more than likely have at least one person say otherwise. Unfortunately, it seems this is just the nature of tire gauges because I have yet to find a gauge where accuracy isn’t questioned.

This unit does not come with a storage pouch or case but that’s in line with competing tire gauges.

Verdict

This tire gauge has a very nice ergonomic shape for an easy and comfortable grip. And the audible signal once the pressure reading has been measured is also quite helpful. The white LED flashlight is a nice touch since there are occasions when checking tire pressure where a light is needed to see the surrounding area.

This tire gauge also reads pressure from 5-99 PSI in 0.5-pound units that are appropriate for both small and large vehicles. Featuring a large, backlit LCD screen with clear display is also really convenient for those with less than perfect eyesight.

Indeed, the Craftsman MS4376 is on par with the standard expected from a brand name many have come to associate with quality.

The Craftsman Programmable Digital Tire Gauge is one of the best digital tire pressure gauges. Go to Tire Gadget’s list of best digital tire gauges!
