Any body know of an accurate tyre pressure guage?

I have got 4 (including one on the foot pump) and they all read different.

Take tyre to a tyre company who use a calibrated gauge then take the reading to work out which one of yours is nearest.
Or spend a few quid a buy a calibrated sealey or Draper (two I have found last the longest,other brands are available) gauge,assuming you have a compressor.

may help?

But in general, PCL stuff is likely to be the best. The pencil gauges are good, if old fashioned.

For a budget solution I have these 2 items. The Halfords digital gauge is 10 years old. The double barrelled foot pump ... 2 weeks.
