We all know a regular baton makes a decent tire checker, but the truth is, nothing beats a lead-filled billy club to make sure your truck tires have the proper amount of air pressure.
This high quality Tire Thumper is made here in the USA. It is made like an old-style police billy club. It is crafted out of a solid piece of cedar that is turned on a wood lathe to give it the proper contours down the body. The large end of the unit has a hole drilled and is filled with lead to add extra weight for a greater impact. The handle has 8 finger-grooves burned into it for a solid grip. There is a lanyard hole drilled through the handle area with a thick leather lanyard tied through it. The Tire Thumper is finished with a light gloss coating on it to protect the wood. It is very compact too. It is only 19" long and about 2" in diameter at the largest point of the body so it won't take up much room. A real nice item.
