Tire Pressure Gauge – The Complete FAQ Guide
You cannot check the pressure of your tire with naked eyes therefore, our manufacturers have introduced different types of tire pressure gauges.
We want you and your family safe. That’s why we recommend checking the pressure of your tires through our latest tire pressure gauges.
This article will guide you about the usage and properties of our tire pressure gauges.
What Is A Tire Pressure Gauge?
A tire pressure gauge is used to measure the pressure of the tires.
Since tires consist of a particular amount of pressure which must be maintained at any cost.
An unmaintained pressure of a tire can result in an accident.
To avoid this problem, manufacturers have introduced special equipment to check the pressure of the tire and fill it when needed.
When temperatures and seasons are changing, the pressure of your tire will also keep changing.
It may cause a hurdle in a safe drive for you.
To ensure a safe drive, tire pressure gauges are designed to tell you the pressure of your tire up to some accuracy.
How Do Tire Pressure Gauges Work?
A Tire pressure gauge is applied to the valve stem of the tire.
There is pressurized air inside the tire and it rushes while pushing the piston towards the right.
The piston pushed by pressurized air covers a few distances.
This distance is relative to the pressure present in the tire.
The spring will be pushing the piston towards the backside while the pressurized air will be pushing it to the right.
The tire pressure gauge is calibrated to some maxim pressure.
When you will remove the tire pressure gauge from your valve stem, the high flow of the pressurized air will stop.
After this, the spring will again push the piston to the left immediately.
You can now read the maximum pressure on your gauge.
What Is The Purpose Of A Tire Pressure Gauge?
A tire pressure gauge is designed for the purpose of measuring the air pressure of a motorbike, car, or any other type of vehicle that must be using inflated tires.
Tire pressure gauges are used because you cannot measure the pressure by simply using your eyes because it can result in misleading situations.
Tire pressure gauges are very reliable and accurate.
Tire pressure gauges can be very easy to use as these types of equipment come in both digital and standard formats.
What Types Of Tires Can We Measure Through A Tire Pressure Gauge?

How Do I Know If My Tire Pressure Gauge Is Accurate?
A good quality tire pressure gauge is always reliable and accurate.
However, if you still feel like your tire pressure gauge is not accurate, you can try tips given as under :
- You can check the air pressure of your tire through your gauge and then check the pressure with the other gauge of the same type.
If the readings come with a significant difference such as 4 PSI or more, between both of your gauges, it means that one or both gauges are inaccurate.
If the difference of the reading is not more than 1 or 2 PSI, it means that both gauges are likely accurate.
- If you want to check the accuracy of your gauge in a more precise way, then go to a near gauges shop and ask the shopkeeper to check the gauge with a master gauge.
A master gauge is considered the most accurate gauge.
Note that you shouldn’t deal with pressure gauges at gas stations as these are mostly inaccurate.
This video might be helpful for you to check the accuracy of your tire pressure gauges :
The following given table tells about the accuracy for pressure indicating dial type, elastic element gauges :
All STE pressure tire gauges meet ASME B40.1 A Industrial gauges, also the cost will be a little expensive while we delivering you the best quality tire gauges.
How Are Truck Pressure Gauges Mounted?
The mounting location of truck pressure gauges is determined by the space or equipment.
Lower back, center back, bottom, inline and side connections are considered as direct mount.
This means that tire pressure gauge sockets and the wetted parts are in direct content with the air whose pressure is to be measured.
You should consider purchasing a back flange for the purpose of panel mounts or if you want the gauge to be flush mounted then purchase a front flange.
U-clamps are also available in the market that is used as an alternative to the flush mounting of a gauge.
This can also help if you are unable to use the front flange.
If any piece of the equipment starts producing heavy vibrations, you may also remote mount your gauge.
Are Our Digital Tire Pressure Gauges More Accurate?
Although digital tire pressure gauges are a bit more expensive than pencil gauges or other mechanical gauges, their accuracy level is great.
Digital tire pressure gauges are more reliable and precise than other gauges.
One thing to note here is that the digital tire pressure gauges rely on the battery, therefore, you should keep an eye on the power level of your digital tire pressure gauges.
Will It Affect The Reading On Tire Pressure Gauge If The Altitude Of Vehicle Changes?
Yes. Different altitudes may correspond to different tire pressure and indeed they will affect the readings on the tire pressure gauges.
The graph is given below clearly illustrates the relationship between the altitude and the air pressure of the vehicle :
When Is The Best Time To Use Tire Pressure Gauge To Check Tire Air Pressure?
The best time to check the tire air pressure through your tire pressure gauge is when your tires are cold.
Tires are cold mostly in the morning time.
You should try checking your air pressure in the morning.
It is because when you will be driving and suddenly you need to check the air pressure of your tires, you will have to wait several hours to cool your tires.
We recommend you check the air pressure of your tires at least once a month.
However, checking your tires pressure every two weeks would be the best thing to do.
It will ensure a safe drive for you and your family.
You can also consult your vehicle’s manufacturer to ensure a safe drive by following his guidelines.
Which Is A Better Digital Or Analog Tire Pressure Gauge?
The betterment level of a gauge depends on the quality and manufacturer of your tire pressure gauge.
However, there are few other factors that explain the accuracy of tire gauges besides their quality and manufacturer.
Analog and digital pressure gauges are capable of fulfilling the same function.
Both of these types use different technologies to measure the air pressure of your tires.
This is why the accuracy level of both of these can vary.
Digital tire pressure analogs are considered much better than tire pressure gauges with analog output.
Digital pressure gauges are a little bit complex and expensive but their accuracy level is higher than analog tire pressure gauges.
Analog gauges are purely mechanical, easy to use, and possess a low level of accuracy.
Therefore, you should choose digital tire pressure gauges as they have much better qualities than an analog tire pressure gauge.
Does Digital Tire Pressure Gauge Come With Batteries?
Yes. Digital tire pressure gauges come with batteries.
These batteries are actually small cells that help them to power and show the readings on the pressure on the display.
These kinds of tire pressure gauges use pressure transducers that help them to display pressure readings on a digital indicator.
Digital pressure gauges give you fast results and more reliability but you should make sure that their battery is working well.
It is interesting to note that there is an auto shut function in these tire pressure gauges.
This function helps to save the energy of your tire pressure gauge.
It means that the small cells can keep one or two years depending on your using frequency.
What To Do If My Gauge Is No Longer Holding Pressure?
If some dust or other such materials get onto the valve seat of your tire pressure gauge, then it may result in a situation where your tire pressure gauge will be no longer holding pressure.
To set this situation, you will have to follow the steps listed as:
- The tire gauge stem should be unscrewed, the brass plug should be pulled out.
After this, check that the O-ring is aligned correctly.
- The next step is to tap out the black valve seat and spring which lies below the brass plug.
There, you will have to give a gentle blow down the stem while you will be pressing the bleed button and re-assemble.
- You can put a drop of oil down the bleed button as it can solve your problem as well.
If you bought a new tire pressure gauge and it is defective then we will surely replace it with a new one.
How Useful Are Tire Pressure Gauges?
The usefulness of your tire pressure gauges can be seen through their advantages which are listed as under :
- Increases the safety on the road
