Can a tire pressure gauge that is for cars be used for measuring tire pressure on my bike?

do you have presta or schrader valves ?

and yes you can use a car tire gauge but if you have presta valves you will need to use an adapter ... but I suggest if you have presta valves to get a gauge for them and dont use the adapter

I got PRESTA valves, but why I need the adapter for the presta valve, my car gauge fits on the presta, dont you need the adapter if you have a schrader valve????

Shrader is the big one like on your car, presta is the skinny one. I use a digital gauge made for cars on my bike all the time. I also use the adapter, never had any issues.
