Its probably a very good tire pressure gauge, but as a tread depth gauge, it could be too bulky to fit between the treads on some tires and it doesn't have a flat surface to be able to get an accurate reading like a proper depth indicator would have.

I've always used a penny, so it's definitely a step up for me! Smiling Face With Open Mouth

Definitely but a proper Milton depth gauge is less than $10 as well.

Are you looking at the same picture I am?

No issues measuring any of the tires I've tried to from snow, to all season to track tires.

Which picture are you referring to? The one that I posted is of a proper depth gauge (with the flat flange and thin probe). The one in the OP uses the same square probe that displays the tire pressure readout and no flange.

Actually, it's not apparent from the photos, but the probe is divided in half, so it's triangular along the depth gauge portion. All of which is beside the fact that this is primarily a very sturdy, metal bodied tire pressure gauge, much better than the flimsy "chromed plastic" models sold for $10 at CT or PA.

(Edited...failure to read on my part)

I have both the pressure gauge and the tread depth gauge. The pressure gauge I have never used it to measure tire depth as I use a separate tool for it. Will definitely last you a lifetime...unless it magically walks off. I bought a Milton inflation tool with the psi readout from the KMS sale thread awhile back. Solid device.

It's actually not the combo, the gauge has the bottom 3/4ths of an inch split into a triangle and graduated into 16ths for half of an inch. You can somewhat see it here: https://www.miltonindustries.com/gauges ... epth-gauge if you look at the 3rd picture.

Thumbs up for Milton quality, but they can be had for $10 too (not on sale)
