Ring Digital Tyre & Tread Gauge
I bought this to replace a lost pressure gauge. I use it not only for checking my car tyres but also for checking expansion tank pressure in boilers! Its small size and swivel head make it ideal for the plumbing use.
Very useful to be able to change the measurement units at the press of a button.
The tread depth gauge will also come in handy when the MOT's due...
Comes with a handy little storage bag and a useful light for finding the dropped dust cap in the dark!

Overall a useful gauge
Initially found it difficult to get a good seal to effect a proper reading. Got there eventually by getting down and close up to the valve. Initially when not getting a good seal the read out reverted to psi which was a pain as I have to use bar units.
The tyre depth gauge is a neat extra to have, which was also a handy means of reducing pressure in over inflated tyres. The led light should also prove useful if having to work in the dark.
Despite initial probs, I think this is will turn out to be a good purchase in the long run.

Compact and easy to use unit.
This is a great little tyre pressure and tread depth tester.It starts showing PSI when turned on. (the most usful one-also shows Bar and other strange SI units!)
It has a useful swivel end to allow easy access to upside down valves.Nice blue backlight on LCD display and also has a bright little LED that can be used to locate the valve cap after using the tester..
The tread gauge is easy to use also with a clear scale of tread depth.
It comes with a semi-rigid case also.
