Product Description

This is the ultimate tire gauge for the performance enthusiast. If you like to have the preferred tool readily available, this is the gauge for you. The MS5510B is the most correct tire gauge readily available. It reads tire pressure from to 60PSI in .01 increments, with a substantial, back-lit LCD screen to make it hassle-free to read. The hassle-free bleed valve makes it hassle-free to drop the pressure if you overinflate. If you have a motorcycle, an off-road automobile, ATV or performance vehicle, get the most out of your high priced tires with correct, constant inflation.

Customer Reviews

This gauge works well and is easy to read. It seats well and does mostly what it should.
There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding from what I have read in other reviews. Let's clear a few things up.
First of all, you do NOT have to wait ten seconds between readings. You DO have to hit the recall button on the bottom between readings.
Secondly, you DO NOT have to send the unit back to replace the batteries. The instructions VERY clearly state the model number of user replaceable batteries (if you were to read the instructions).
The hose was flexible for me in 30 degree weather contrary to what I have read elsewhere. Maybe it gets stiff in really cold weather but then I use mine in the garage.
Very Nice Gauge

I like this gauge. For the price, it is efficient and accurate. Yes the hose is a bit stiff, but hardly more than a minor annoyance. As for any leaks, I have had none (so far). The fitting over the tire valve stem seems just fine to me. Just get it on snugly; grips the stem just fine. I also simply bleed the pressure out of the gauge between readings and all is good to go for the next reading, so not sure what others here are talking about when they say they need to press the recall button. I only use that for calibration. In addition, I do not understand what one other reviewer was referring to when having to wait 10 seconds between reads... As I bleed, sure, the pressure reading is not accurate, but once you stop the bleeding while using the bleed valve, the current pressure is immediately updated for me...
Overall, definitely recommended, at least for now. If that changes, I'll be sure to update here.
December 7, 2010 UPDATE: 3 years later, this is still working flawlessly! No leaks, battery still good.
