Tire Gauge with Filler Chuck and Bleed Valve



Mine can't arrive soon enough.

Since forever I've been annoyed by the process of first adding air, then measuring the pressure, switching back and forth between the air hose and my pressure gauge until I get it right.

Not to mention that my fingers are completely black by the time I'm done with all five (yes, I check the spare too — you don't? Shame on you...) tires.

I'm having an air party down at the Exxon station one yoctosecond after my new toy arrives.

From the website:

    Tire Gauge with Filler Chuck and Bleed Valve

    Top up your tires in half the time

    Our Tire Gauge with Filler Chuck and Bleed Valve lets you add air while you're checking the pressure.

    This lets you skip the routine of removing the gauge, adding air, checking the pressure and repeating ad infinitum.

    The chuck clips securely to the tire stem and you add air directly through the gauge.

    If you go too far, you can bleed off pressure by pushing a button on the gauge.

    Super-accurate gauge is protected by a shock-resistant cover and reads 0-100psi.

Careful. I bought one of these and despite the rubber rim, if you drop it from a little as 2 feet, it breaks. Completely. Kaputt. Then it's straight to the landfill, can't be repaired...
After reading a lot of reviews I instead bought this digital gauge:
and I love it. Works like a dream.

Garage airlines here in Europe do it all for you.
You set the pressure you want on the front panel, shove the hose on the valve and wait. It chugs away for a few moments until it beeps and you move on to the next tyre. The only possible hassle (apart from dropping the valvecaps) is having to set it for two different pressures front/rear.
