Mine died two weeks ago (had it for eight years). It’s good but it’s not very powerful.

Isn’t this just repackaged Chinese stuff; same as this one on eBay £19?

I was looking at this cos of POWERRRRR as my old Ring one (RIP) was so slow.

+1 never had to use it but it fits in the cut out for the OEM one.

The Ring one mentioned in this thread has pretty poor reviews on Amazon Confused.

Good spot, the one from carparts for less is the same one

Good value at £19

I obviously got discount from Eurocarparts but not 50%😬

Would you buy it again and does it give an accurate reading? That's one downside to analogue pressure gauges! If yes and yes I'll go for it.

Fed up with having to go to the petrol station for air for our cars, hence on the lookout for one for home. Difficult to find one that's well reviewed universally... what

I got one of the Michelin units and a TPMS from Steelmate. Easy to use and small, so I've put the OEM inflator away in a safe place and carry the new one. The pressure readings on the Michelin always agree with the Steelmate display which sits neatly & unobtrusively on top of the centre console in front of the gear lever. Fascinating to see pressure rise/fall with tyre temp. Was so impressed by TPMS that bought a cheap Chinese version for wife's car and that seems to be just as good (at a third the price and actually has temp sensor too).
