Mechanical Tire Gauge Making Basic Tire Maintenance Easy #TireGauge #Review

Written By:  Bobbie

I leave all the car maintenance to hubby, but one of the very few things that I chose to do other than filling up the car up with gas, is check the tire pressure.  I am forever thinking the tires look low on air, and instead of making hubby check all the time, I just check them myself.  Federico's Car Care sent me a Heavy Duty Tire Pressure Gauge in exchange for my honest review.

The first thing I immediately liked about this this tire gauge is that it is a dial.  I have that one where the little stick pops out, and I'm great at hitting it when I bring it up to my eyes to read, which means I'm having to check it all over again because I end up moving the stick. The angle of the tip is a little bit different that the old stick gauge that I have been using, so it took a few tries on my part before I got it down.  The rubber around the dial is soft to grip, and does not make it too buky to manage.

I had hubby check out the tire gauge as well and give me his take.  He likes the enclosed dial as well, and it is easy to read.  The dial stays put until a small button on the side is puched, and releases the pressure to set it back to zero.  The button is smooth to push, and does not get stuck.  It is comfortable to use, and the tip swivels, so it's easy to move so you can get a good grip to check the tire pressure no matter where the tire stem is.  The back has some sort of conversion table for BAR, PSI, and KPA.  The only one I understand is PSI, but I wanted to mention it in case it is something you are looking for in a tire gauge.
