Tire Pressure Gage

Guy what are you using for your tire pressure gages for track use?

Any hold up better that others while still being accurate.

3 of mine got jacked at the last track day and i just noticed tonight so I am gage less.

Someone seems to have also jacked all of your "u's" too

IIRC what I use is an Accu Gauge or something like that.





I'm not too sure though for dead on accuracy though, maybe getting calibrated once a year or so to make sure?
Some people I know swear by the stick/pen type ones, so who knows.

Re: Tire Pressure Gage

I have the Accugauge too. Got mine about 6 years ago, haven't had it calibrated before since its always been within 1 psi or less of every other newer gauge I've checked it against. I believe you can mail them to the company for calibration though. I wouldn't say they're real durable though, the face cover is plastic and I cracked mine when I dropped it in the driveway last week but still reads the same as my backup gauge. STG has them.

Re: Tire Pressure Gage

I use this one from Motion Pro. I like it because the face is big and it is easy to see the 1psi lines, instead of having to guess.

Re: Tire Pressure Gage

I use this one at the track and in the shop. Most of the tire vendors use this one and we have tested them against each other for accuracy. We did 6 Motion Pro Gauges at the last trackday and there was only 1/2 psi variance between them.

Mine has 5 years on it and still perfect.
I have them in stock.

Get effortless, accurate tire pressure readings with QuickCar's liquid-filled tire pressure gauges! All liquid-filled gauges are affected by temperature and atmospheric changes, with the air and liquid inside of the gauges expanding and contracting with these changes. An internal pressure buildup will affect your reading. The internal gauge pressure must be the same as the environment in order to get a true reading. This is why all liquid-filled gauges are equipped with bleeder valves to equalize the internal pressure to that of the environment. QuickCar has taken a new approach to this issue and has made more user-friendly gauges. These gauges feature an interior diaphragm that automatically adjusts to these changes, so no manual equalization is necessary! QuickCar liquid-filled tire pressure gauges are offered in 20, 40, and 60 psi versions.



Calvin, 1993 to 2007, I will miss you my friend and will never forget you.....RIP big guy.

Re: Tire Pressure Gage

Thanks guys

Wow so many good ones to chose from. I have no idea which one to get.

I am keeping the next one I buy in the truck and will buy a cheap Harbor Freight one for when people come over to borrow it and never return it.

I am missing so much stuff from my track toolbox it is crazy but its my fault as I do help lot's of people out and let them borrow whatever they need.

Lucky I keep the high end tools at home.
