Costumer Reviews

This digital tire gauge is made by Accutire and is the same as their model MS 4751WC. I purchased this gauge because it is the only one I have found that measures to the Tenth of a pound. I do not like gauges that measure to a half of pound, rounding up or down. The Michelin has a nice feel in your hand and the dial is large and easy to read, even when it is dark, due to the illumination. I compared it to other quality gauges and found it to be very accurate. it comes in a very nice zippered case. If you want an accurate, easy to use and read gauge this is the one.


-Sturdy Feeling

-Nice case

-Easy to read display

-Led flashlight could be useful



-Kinda complicated to use for such a simple use

-Difficult to attach without leaking air

I pulled this out of the box turned it on and used it...No reading came up on the display. Hit some more buttons and tried again...No reading! I then had to read the instructions. It has a good sturdy feel, a nice case, but a little complicated to use to just take a tire pressure reading.

I used this on a couple of different cars once I got it to work. I found it required a bunch of pressure to take a reading without leaking air. And in two cases I had to add more air in tires that would have read properly if I would have gotten a good seal.

This is the most expensive digital tire pressure gauge I have ever owned...And so far it only gets an average rating from me.
