    Default tire pressure guages

    as you can see, couple of weeks ago I asked about tire pressure guages.
    Since I had 4 and none read the same. well, upon advice, I bought a
    couple of new ones. one I paid 3.95 + shipping on Ebay and one I bought
    from Amazon.com for 17.00 + shipping. the 3.95 one reads 3 lbs less than
    the higher cost one!! Get what you pay for???

    Perhaps, but it really doesn't matter as long as each one reads
    consistently. They'll both get you close enough that you can set the
    tire pressure based on the ride characteristics without being too low or
    too high. Hyundai's recommended pressures are too low anyway,
    particularly in the front. My Elantra handles best at 36 front/32 rear.

    why not spend about $ 20.00 and go to a calibration shop and have on of them
    verified.
    then you know you have the correct pressure.

    Ha,
    I had the same problem last summer and got miffed at myself for adjusting my
    tire pressure to 42 lbs. all around on my Santa Fe while on a 500 mile trip,
    due to my old pencil style gauge reading way too low. I ended up buying a
    bunch of gauges and comparing it to a pressure gauge a friend uses for
    research projects.

    The closest one was a digital gauge that BJ's warehouse had for $8. The
    range of the 5 gauges I bought went from 22 lbs to 40 lbs. Even the $28
    brass dial gauge was way off.

    I returned the other gauges and bought more of the BJ's digital gauges for
    my wife and kids. They all read within a half pound of each other. They
    aren't the easiest to use due to their shape (teardrop) but at least they
    are accurate.

    I have an electronic one with a digital readout which reads to one half
    pounds.....The local gas station has a regular old style air hose/regulator
    for customers (no quarters!) and my gage agrees with it....had doubts about
    the electronic gadget but it seems to be reliable and consistent.
