Default I got mine

I got mine last week . Following is a short reveiw

Got from Four sesons Mumbai by paying online and geeting them couriered.

Service and sells expereince - Top class

Prodcut is nicely packed withe clear isntructions and took hardly two minutes to fit.

Locking nut and spanner also provided free of charge with the set of four.


Problems in fucntion so far - None

Shortcomings

1. The locking nut is just a check nut and your local neighbourhood friend(D can hust unscrew them using a plier. So expect them to be stolen as they become more popular

2. Should be also supplied with additional orings for the valve seat as I expect the Orings will fail faster in Indian conditions. It is a crime to wate 600 rs. beacuse jsut 20 rs. worth of orings are bad

Thanks for the review.

In regards to your doubts.

1) The locking nuts are check nuts but it is not easy to get around it using a plier. A usual big spanner wont get to it but a small spanner like the one supplied would defenitely get to it but it is not a 1 minute job. It requires both time and patience both that your neighbourhood friend wont have most probably.

2) the O-rings are very high quality ones and have been tested for their relaibility. Moreover you have a ONE year warranty on the product. Even if your O- ring fails you'll get a replacement.

Cheers

Default Pete’s Air Checkers - Does it really work ?

Has anyone used Pete’s Air Checkers ?

Is it practical for our day-to-day life use ?

Is it accurate or is it just another marketing gimmick ?

hello everyone,
i got a chance to see the air chekers from petes.a wonderfull innovation and very helpfull product.To emphasise its importance i would like to say one of my expierience.I had a santro 2003 model which used to give me about 15 km inside city and 18-19 on highways.once i had a trip of about 500 kms and i filled up a tankfull of fuel and started my journey.at the end of it i topped up and found that i had travelled 504 kms for a tank full and that calculated down to 14.4 kms on the average wherein i expected 18.when i checked my tyre pressure it was found to be 15 psi which usually is 28-30 psi.and one factor i found was that visually in radials its too tough to find that the tyre pressure is low or not . so a product of this nature is sure to help you all a long way.
each piece was costing 500/- per pack and it comes in many types ,like checkers for 28psi,27psi,30psi,etc.the pack is provided with a lock nut to prevent it from being stollen.
make max use of it guys,
ram

Frankly, I'm not impressed with this air chekers. It's not that perfect. Tyre pressure for my car should be 30 and I found it green when the pressure dropped to 24..

I'm going back to my chrome valve caps once I find them at home.

Go ahead and buy it Carfreak. Even if it fails, Pete's head office is just a stone throw away. We can make a DHARNA there. We've got mixed reviews, so just hope for the good part.

I bought some three sets... one for me and two for my friends...

ALL of us have stopped using them... Sure they worked for some time initially ... after that they somehow stopped working... they are not accurate at all. I found, on more than a handful of instances, that it kept showing green even when the tyre pressure went as low as 20psi - one instance even 18!! (I had bought the 28psi checkers)

LIke Rudra said - its back to the chrome caps for me - till I find them that is - untill then am on regular plastic caps.

This is one experiment that failed!

Check air regularly every weekend - why is it that we need an 'automated' solution for every routine activity?

Best way out is get the air checked everytime you go refill petrol/diesel.

What if the tyres are filled with nitrogen?? It's not easy to check pressure using normal air checkers??
So these things come handy in those circumstances. Right???
