    Or you can get a digital tire pressure reader from lazada

    but do these gadgets hold their calibration well?

    ^better than analog gauge

    Better than visiting several gas stations just to check tire pressure. Visiting several stations burn gas. It simply defeats the purpose of maintaing proper tire pressure to save gas

    If you decide to get and want to verify the accuracy of the item, try to release air on the tire. Lower reading means the gadget is reading tire pressure fairly well

    What do you call the cap where you plug in the tire gauge/ inflator?

    Will the tire lose pressure faster if its gone? Also where to buy? Medyo na OC ako at may isang kulang

    the valve stem cap.
    it just keeps the structure clean.
    it has nothing to do with tire pressure.
    i buy the cheaper plastic models. 4 to a pack. sa mall auto parts or hardware stores. ace. handyman. i don't buy from the cars dept. i buy from the tools dept. same thing, different label, cheaper.
    the metal ones are nakawin.

    I agree. Buy the nondescript black plastic ones. I haven't had mine stolen for over 2 years now.

    But when I had the shiny metal valve caps (free from the tire shop), few months lang ninakaw na. Tyre pressure

    Same here. Sa simbahan din madalas mawala. The irony. And then pagkatapos ng mass unahan/gitgitan palabas ng parking 😖

    Agree the cheap ones are the best to have. Just get more spares to replace them if they still get stolen.

    Been looking at anti theft valve caps but they seem to rust after a while.

    Nakakainis talaga dito sa atin. May gusto pa naman akong cheap tpms:

    Amazon.com: EZ Read Tire Caps - Valve Stem Caps that Monitor Tire Pressure - Tire Caps, All Season, Prevent Flats & Blow Outs - PSI 33/34: Automotive

    Syempre di pwede dito.

    Yes, i also loose the cheap ones from time to time (usually pa-isa isa).

    Sa simbahan sa probinsiya, gitgitan to go out also. Buti sa Manila where i go to Church, parking isn't an issue.
