Tire Fix Motorcycle Tire Gauge
Tirefix makes only junk products
Have gone through couple of them.. After few uses it conks out :-(. Switches to Accutire. Seems to be more reliable.
Overall rating: There is no option for zero or minus stars :-(.

I find this guage very difficult to get an accurate and consistant reading. It is useless for car tires however is good for motorcycles due to right angle design. The button for changing from PSI-kPa is very sensitive and often gets pressed while trying to get a reading. Changing the scale loses the reading meaning you must try again. Very annoying. Also I feel it times out too quickly. For $5 it will do but overall not a very useful tool.

Works Great for Motorcycles
This pressure guage works great for motorcycles. It connects to the valve at a 90 degree angle. This is because the space between the valve and the final drive gear is very limited. The angle of most conventional guages don't allow a good contact to the valve.
I noticed that a lot of people have given this unit a bad review. Please people READ what the produce is designed for. It is designed for and clearly marked as a "MOTORCYCLE" tire guage. It is not intended for a car, though I'm sure it will work great on many car rims as well.

Not a good design
This gauge is accurate but the design of the tip makes it difficult to make a good connection on some stems. It would be much better if it was angled. The display could use a backlight.

Seems to be very accurate
Been using this for about a year and gives consistent and accurate readings on my car. My one con was going to be that it doesn't fit on some cars with thicker hubcaps, but online it appears to be a 'motorcycle' gauge which, for some reason, I didn't notice in the store!
Regardless, still works well on most cars as well.
A good buy.

easy pressure reader
This gauge comes in handy since you can read the tire pressure after removing the gauge from the tire stem. Works great.

Motorcycle Digital Tire Gauge
It's hard to find a good tire gauge let alone one for a motorcycle. I've got mag wheels and most gauges are hard to fit between the valve and the hub, rear wheel.This gauge does the trick.
I would say the gauge is very accurate and easy to use. I use it for my mountain bike as well.
Great tool and for the price, excellant.

Takes getting used to
I'm still getting used to using this on my motorbike. I wind up leaking a lot of air before getting a good reading. Might just be me but it's hard to tell when it's well lined up with the valve i.e. whether or not you've got a good seal before you push.
OK on sale.

For motorcyles? Worked on my truck
This was a nice, reasonably-priced tire gauge that worked great on my truck. Easy to use and read. Unfortunately, I left it in the truck when I sold it, so it's back to the store for another one.

This works great and appears to be extremely accurate. The shape does allow it to fit nicely between the bike spokes however it works as equally great on the car too.
