With a truck tire gauge. A bit awkward at first but you get used to it.

If you've got the "airless" valve stems, it's nearly impossible to read the tire pressures ... and just as difficult to add air to the tires.

Many of us have replaced the factory supplied stems with these:

DL1SP13FR Chrome Duallyvalve Kit W/ Front Stems

These are solid metal stems and extend into positions where it's easy to get at them. There have been a variety of discussions of the problem and the use of these stems to fix it.

And once you have the metal valve stems:

TST 507 Flow Thru - Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems - Truck System Technologies

To continuously read your pressures (and temperatures) while you're driving down the road.
