Tire Gauge

You can get by with a cheap stick gauge but they can be difficult to read. I don't care for the battery digital ones only because I don't like them.... I like a good and large analog gauge with a flexible hose attached. Check out JEGS.com and look at the AutoMeter gauges that are 0-100 pounds. Good quality.

I don't know what kind of wheels or caps you have on that rig, but I've had the best luck with a truck gauge sorta like this one. I picked up mine at a truck stop, and it's a bit different...but Milton is a good brand

some folks like digital gauges, but I get too hung up in the decimal points needlessly.

There's another style with angled head, but I have a harder time with them personally.

Maybe better for bigger semi-truck sized tires, I'm not sure...

I use this one because I like having a bleed button and find the flexible hose model the easiest to use. Most models are digital but I prefer the simple analog dial with a 160 lb range.

I use this one. Crossed checked it a dozen times with other gauges. It's perfectly fine. I do have valve extensions and those work well too but a bit of a bear to install if the tires are not seperated.

I like lighted, digital gauges: they're easier to read!
Something that'll read up to about 120 pounds is nice!
(I got the last one at a Toyota Dealership; but they're about as common as dirt... )

I use an air gauge that is part of the hose from the compressor. I think it was purchased at Lowes. I also have hose extensions that make checking the duallies easier.
