    Does the digital gauges has to be constantly calibrated?

    I have the pencil type from AutoZone I believe it the Slime brand. Then I have one from NAPA. These are about 3 pounds different. I also have Joe's Racing tire gauge https://www.amazon.com/Joes-Racing-32307-Pressure-Gauge/dp/B00404WDUC All are a few pounds apart from each other.

    I thought the digital gauges were self calibrating by holding the buttons.

    Is the information on Consumer Reports can be trusted?
    Good night, Bill!

    All depends on the type you get and how old it is....

    Ours don’t have a zero cal button.

    To be honest we don’t care what it reads.
    As long as it reads the same way all the time.

    At the track we run 3 or 4 psi lower than most others.
    Our notes are set to that gauge. When others gauges die and they ask if they can borrow ours.
    I advise them it’s not a good idea. But when they do, we pass them..lol
    It’s all relative...


    I run 37 to 38 psi on my truck with AT20’s
    Is my own gauge accurate?
    Don’t care.

    What I've been doing is using one gauge. Even if that one gauge is off, it going to be way off if I start switching to different gauges.

    I read these types of website and magazines get paid by manufacturer for good reviews.

    I still like to know what air pressure I have in the tires. As accurate as I can get.

    In the winter time, being a few pounds off can threw the TPMS light on.

    With the Durango the dash gauge and the handheld tire gauge doesn't give the same reading. It will drive me insane trying to get the right tire pressure.
