If you can, get a pressure gauge as well. Best if we can to avoid sharing tools during COVID.

If you don't have one, you can get one from Amazon. Link here: https://www.amazon.ae/Promate-Roadgear- ... B01IVOTMAU

You can also find one in ACE hardware store or Homesmith store

It'll depend on the lead marshals of the various convoys how they conduct the drive.
