Tyre pressure gauges are a comparatively small product category, so, instead of surveying manufacturers, our buyers head straight out to stores, including auto accessory shops and online retailers, and purchase whatever they can find for us to put to the test.
Our tester checks the accuracy of the gauges at 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50psi against a calibrated high-precision gauge.
Ease of use
For ease of use, we assess:
- how well the gauge fits into the hand
- how easy they are to apply to the valve
- how easy the pressure is to read in daylight
- the instructions.
The overall score is made up of:
- Performance (70%)
- Ease of use (30%)
We maintain a lab that is up to date with the latest reference machines and calibrated measurement tools for our testers to bring you the right results.
