Longacre Pro Precision Tire Gauge
I'm Going to Pump You Up
Another important player in this test is my trusty Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator. It's cordless and allows me to set tire pressures on the cars without requiring a plug-in.
As I mentioned in the Bench Racing post, Fussy Tires, I don't have access to a good air compressor or a reliable power source to plug one into and the Ryobi Dual Function Inflator/Deflator has filled the bill admirably around my driveway — side note: I'd really, really like to be able to say shop.
Using the Longacre Pro Precision Tire Gauge, I corrected the tire pressure to exactly 32 PSI with just as much ease as it was to read the initial pressure. Both the fast and slow pressure release buttons work great to accurately set the pressure with easy precision.
Having never used a gauge of this quality, I am genuinely amazed at its ease-of-use — even if I can't measure its accuracy against a certified pressure gauge, it's obvious from the start that this is a high-quality instrument. No, this isn't a sales pitch, this is me sharing my genuine awe.
