I don't know what brand I bought, I just went to the local truck stop and got mine. I just figured what was good for the truckers, was good for me....

Alcoa makes a good one. They should have their products listed on their web site.

Do not get one of the cheap ones (Walmart 97 cents), get a better grade of one and will last you along time. I bought mine at the discount parts store for $8 and has the dual head for ease of use. Also, look at the pressures you use in your tires. On my motorhome I run 60lbs and the regular car gauges run out at about 50, so be sure to get one that works for your tires.



Happy Trails.

Re Tire Pressure Gage and Filler.

The best tire gage/filler I have ever had is a unit form Harbor Freight (www.harborfreight.com)ITEM 30502-3VGA at $9.99 its a steal

After looking at some past posts, I'm moving this to Tech Issues - seems to have them most recent pressure gauge threads.

Just my 2 cents worth. I seldom get a really good reading from a tire gauge that has a readout pin. If you don't get a perfect fit on the valve stem you need to push back in and try again many gauges won't give the full reading if the pin is not pushed back in when you try to get a reading.
Got a good one from CW about $22 really works great, flex hose dial gauge and traps the air, lets you read the gauge then release the air. If you don't get a good match on the valve stem just wiggle until you get a fit without air escaping. The unit holds the reading until you release it. Great for old eyes that need things out at arms length.
Eyes not bad -- Arms getting shorter
