Tire Gauge Recommendations Needed

As I am sure most of you area are the outside tire has the valve stem turned inwards. What type of gauge have you found best for checking the pressure? Recommendations/advice will be greatly appreciated.

This is what I use. I highly recommend them. They come in different pressures.

I have seen these before and have to ask... Does this not automatically make a single tire blowout a catastrophic dual tire blowout???

From their website:


BLOWOUT AND LEAKS
Crossfire has a safety feature that automatically isolates the “good” tire in the event of a blowout. When a blowout occurs, the internal safety valve closes immediately with only a slight loss of pressure to the “good” tire.
In slow leak situations, the valve isolates both tires after a pressure drop of approximately 10 P.S.I.

This is what I use, has dual sided valve port, one for front facing valve and one for the rear facing valve.

I have a lot of different gauges/inflators over the years, but decided to get a "commercial quality" gauge with hose and metal inflation attachment from NAPA. It wasn't cheap but I use it to check my air (does not let air escape even when not plugged into compressor), fits inner and outer valves and acts as a deflater on my jeep when airing down my tires.

I have found that cheaper gauges will not give consitent readings over time and for doing 75-80 psi in the motorhome, I wanted something quick, accurate and reliable.

Another option may be to go to a truck stop and get one of their gauges without the inflator if you prefer. I carry one that my dad gave me when he quit driving for Swift, but still default to the inflater.

Had a Chevy dually for 25 years hauling my Lance camper. I installed a braided hose extension kit and never had any problems.

Installed the same setup on my 2017 Greyhawk and it works like a champ. I riveted 2 small L brackets to the hubcap rather than using the supplied clips. That is what came with my older kit 25 years ago which I feel is more secure.

I would never use an inflator/gauge that requires you to access an inner tire's valve. Too clumsy!!!!

I have purchased various inflators over the years and now use a very nice digital one. Easy to use and read. Appears accurate when compared to my other accurate gauges.

Amazon of course:
