IMO, the dial gauge-style is easier to use for airing down, if only because it fits more comfortably in the hand than a pen-style. They're also easier to read than those pop-up gauges. Arguably easier than digital as well, since you don't have to account for the (usually tiny) LCD being held at the wrong angle.

Costco has a 2-pack of excellent dial gauges from time to time (read they sell out fast)
~ 10" long and accurate to +/- 1/2 psi, we have 'em in all our vehicles.

All brass dial gauges seem legit....

As opposed to the plastic ones you get from auto zone at the check out counter.

I currently use the pen style pop out gauge but I never really can tell if it accurate. As I'm putting air in and can see the tire inflate, the reading from when I started and stopped always seems negligible.


Thanks guys, ill see what I can find online.
