The Slime 2005-A is part of the Tire pressure gauge test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Tire pressure gauge models like the 2005-A are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Accuracy: Accuracy is based on a comparison of each model against a known calibrated master gauge at various pressures, and at cold, room, and hot temperatures. Cold and hot temperatures simulated storing the gauge in a car in winter and summer temperatures.
Ease of use: Ease of use is primarily an assessment of pressure readability and how easy is it to take a pressure reading on an inflated tire.
Durability: Each model was checked for accuracy after a drop test of approximately 30-inches from a table to judge durability.
Unbiased: Retailers cannot influence placement.
Ad-free: As an integrated part of Consumer Reports, you shop in a completely ad-free environment.
New products only: You will never find used or refurbished products for sale.
