Tyre pressures are one of the most important aspects of motoring. Every vehicle, and every situation demands a different vehicle set-up and most of the time a good compromise is the best we can achieve. Tyre pressures, however, are one thing we are able to change on the spot. Having a speedy deflator in your kit will save you time and hassle when you need to drop the pressure and having a compressor gives you the peace of mind that you can put air back in if you get a bit carried away.
Speedy tyre deflator
The Ironman 4x4 Speedy tyre deflator is a quick and easy way to check and lower tyre pressure. The unit simple screws onto your tyre valve and removes the inner valve, then slides allowing air to be removed quickly from the tyre. The gauge displays the tyre pressure and when the tyre has been lowered to the desired pressure, the inner valve is simply screwed back in and the unit removed. The tyre deflator comes in a carry pouch and is an essential tool for 4WD users who change tyre pressures. Price is $ 91 incl. GST and is available from Ironman 4x4 dealers throughout the country or by phoning 0508 IRONMAN.
