TiroGage – tire gauges that stays at your wheels

for the truckers out there, how many times have you forgotten to check your tires pressure and ended with flats in the middle of a highway? until you have self-inflating tires on your trucks, keeping the tires pressure in check is essential. besides it’s a good habit to keep the pressure in check, cos’ the right pressure gives you optimum mileage. though i am not a trucker myself, i would think it is a hassle to pop by a gas station to do the check or even, whipping out a portable gauge to do the job. now this particular gadget makes this chores a little bit easier. affixed directly air valves, the tirogage lets driver check the air pressure at a glance and getting in/out the air is via the tirogage as well. pretty new. it would be lovely if i can use these on cars.
