Difference Between Schrader Universal Tire Gauge and Balloon Tire Gauge


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 


I recently acquired a set of Schrader balloon and universal tire gauges. I tested them on my ‘26 Dodge (With Budd Steel Wheels)  and have very different results. I expected the balloon tire gauge to read and the universal not. But I got the opposite. 

The balloon tire gauge was off the charts and the universal was within actual readings. Am I using the wrong gauge for the wrong application? Or maybe one is broken? What do you think?
