Michelin Tyre Pressure Checker review

We review Michelin's Tyre Pressure Checker

Advertised Features

The Michelin Pressure Checker is a quick, convenient and cost-effective way to keep on top of tyre pressures on almost any type of light vehicle with a tyre valve fitted.

On a typical vehicle, it enables checking all four pressures accurately within seconds, and without needing to connect a pressure gauge to the valve, which is a grubby job and allows air to escape from the tyre.

Designed to be universal, it can be used on everything from bicycles, mopeds, scooters, motorbikes, cars, 4x4s, vans, minibuses, motorhomes and light-duty trailers , caravans and horsebox trailers.

Current price: (August 2020) £39.95 - Available from Fit2Go TPMS Ltd

In use

Using the Michelin Tyre Pressure Checker

To obtain a pressure reading (accurate to within 1.5 psi), simply switch on the supplied pressure checking device and hold it against the sensor. The pressure will be shown on a back-lit LCD screen for 30 seconds (before auto-powering off), making it easy to use in both daylight and hours of darkness. Readings can be changed between psi and bar.

There are no batteries in the sensors (they work using Near-Field Communication technology) and the pressure checker can be recharged via the supplied USB cable.

The system is designed for use on tyres with an operating pressure of up to 86 psi.
