    I've a similar pair on my bike, and my previous bike. I paid more though. No problems.

    I use the one Jim sells. They alerted me to a puncture last week. The nice AA man put the spare on for me. Saved me ruining the wheel. Well pleased.

    I'm sure Jim's are great, but a heck of a difference in price.

    I first got those for my bike but they are too big for a bike, look bad. Now on the van.

    Jims are more expensive because they are far superior in quality and use, containing precisely machined componants.
    They are not pressure specific like the ones in your link so can be swapped between vehicles with vastly differing pressures.

    They can be seen at a glance in the dark, and from a distance, without the need for additional lighting.

    With quality you get what you pay for.

    You will by cheap and buy twice or more. I have Jim's and bought once works perfect both on MH and the car. Enough said..........................

    Ive got an identical set fron ebay supposed to be for 60psi .
    During last french trip had a very slow puncture noticed exaggerated sway on a roundabout.
    Guage indicated into the yellow segment when down to 41psi and not before so a fail from me.

    Yorkshire way is cheaper.

    1) look at tyre

    2) is it flat ?

    3) if yes, it's knackered

    4) if no, it's OK

    Easy eh ?
