Accutire MS-4004B tire pressure gauge

This digital gauge performs well and has an easy to read illuminated display.  Good pressure capacity for most passenger car tires. The air chuck is finicky for getting a good seal on a valve. 

About

The Accutire MS-4004B is part of the Tire pressure gauge test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Tire pressure gauge models like the MS-4004B 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.
