It's important to keep your car tyres at the correct pressure. It helps them last longer and makes driving safer. Having your own tyre pressure gauge can come in handy - saving you from pulling into a petrol station where the pressure gauge may not necessarily be as accurate as you may think.

We've put dial, digital and pencil type tyre pressure gauges to the test. Our expert testers give every pressure gauge a thorough workout to help find the models that:

  • are the most accurate
  • are easiest to use
We also give you good and bad points for each model, as well as what features they provide. Our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top. Show less

Dial gauge: this is the most common type, and models come in a wide range of sizes and prices. Generally, the larger the dial, the easier it is to read – but you also want to consider storing the gauge in your car. Digital gauges: these are generally the easiest to read, especially if their display is backlit. However, you'll have to replace their battery every now and then, so there'll be a small ongoing cost. Pencil gauges: we didn't find this type as easy to read as others, but pencil models are generally cheap and very easy to store.
