digital tire gauge with 28.5 reading One of the best ways to save fuel is to make sure your tires are properly inflated. Underinflated tires are more likely to wear out faster, fail, waste fuel, and can also affect cornering ability and braking. With the help of a tire gauge you prevent these problems and keep your tires in good working condition.

To get the best reading on tire pressure make sure the car has been parked for several hours in a cool shaded area, as you want the tires to be cool. Taking your tire pressure is something you should add to your monthly car maintenance.  You also need to check the spare tire as this is often overlooked.

There are three different types of tire gauges available; dial, stick, and digital. Each type has its pros and cons but all three types will do the job.

Stick gauges resemble ballpoint pens and are the least expensive, but can be hard to get accurate readings from. Dial gauges cost a little bit more than stick gauges but offer more features and may come with an extension hose, but are bulky and can be damaged if dropped. Digital gauges are the most expensive but are easier to read and more durable than dial or stick gauges.  They may also come with a light up displays that are easier to read in dark conditions. They are also prone to damage if dropped and some can cost $50 or more.

Below you’ll find a chart of the top 10 rated tire gauges. The chart contains info on the type of tire gauge, price, model, and the range of pressure it can measure. Any of the tire gauges below will do the job and it’s just a matter of personal preference which one you prefer.
