    My air chuck works on everything in the world EXCEPT my 21 Tundra. Just spent 20 min trying to get air in. Am I missing something?? Need special fitting?

    I admit to doing that once after filling bike tires. It was a selectable chuck. Why doesn’t this fit? Oh….

    It's a standard fitting..
    Did you get it done?

    BTW your 2021 is either a crewmax or double cab.
    It isn't an access cab as stated in your custom title..:thumbsup:

    I should probably mention mine is about 3 PSI off.
    I never realized it until I got an aftermarket HU in my 2014 that shows tire pressure.
    I never could figure out why the gauge read 42 but the HU read 39.

    The same thing happened in my rental 20201 Tacoma, so I pulled out the old reliable hand gauge.
    Sure enough, the inflator gauge was wrong.
    Wasn't worth buying another one, I just remember that it's off when I use it..

    Being off work, I have way too much time on my hands..

    Had an 04 access cab. At age 70 new things are tough to grasp. Can't get air in. Checked regulator and pushed in pin on chuck. Lots of air comes out. I quit for the time being.

    Mines been showing almost perfect when I see it in my Tacoma.

    BUT, good thing to know, I'll keep an eye out for that and I'll know if somethings not right what the issue is. I'll probably do the same thing and use it knowing it's X amount off PSI if it ever gets to that point.

    For what it's worth on my 04 the TPMS sensors apparently can be different lengths. I have 2 wheels that I can't use the press style chuck on, only the screw on. It's quite annoying.
