Re: Tyre Pressure Indicators.
Some intersesting replies here. I fitted these about 18 months ago and have found them useful. Illustrated recently when I had a slow puncture, went out one day and saw one tyre indicating ' Yellow '. topped up the pressure and then two days later I had the same again, obviously a problem that turned out to be a screw throgh the tyre. I think worthwhile as a quick daily check but obviouly not a substitute for a proper check using my trusty 40 year old gauge. ( Honest I do use this regulary, but, lets be honest, probably not as often as I should which I reckon is true for most people. )
There is a similar thread running about tyre pressure gauges and lots of people like the digital gauges but the cheapo I bought in Germany was so wildly inaccurate that it went into the bin, perhaps the saying that you only get what you pay for holds true for these.
