What tire pump do you use to keep pressure?

What tire pump do you use to keep pressure? I just bought this because they literally all seem the same but I feel like I cheaped out.

        Basic compressors are far cheaper and you know this. Best deal is used industrial compressors so I also run those (dual 5HP Saylor-Bealls, using both for blasting or one for little shit). The pair were $250 at auction because everyone else was scared off by three phase while I know its virtues and have an RPC.

          you are TRULY the stupidest poster on this site if you are calling a 240V industrial compressor cheaper than a $35 tire inflator

        Lol at you moron. Literally 120 volt 1-2hp air compressor with 15gal air tank is enough to fill car tires with air in seconds.

      Lift out filthy compressor, unwind all the hose, run extension lead, no thanks I'd rather top up my tyres with a shitty 12v one.

    They all suck in some way. The good DC ones are DC-only. Most of the good battery ones are battery-only or DC-only. The DeWalt one has an AC adapter but that's an extra $45, and it's an older design to begin with, gets very hot doing larger tires. The Milwaukee one is great but is battery-only. Some of the chinese companies are introducing competitor products but they are of coure of inferior durability/reliability.

    The only really good DC ones I know of are VIAIR's and Bulldog Winch's high end one (which costs around $500-$700). I'm thinking of getting rid of all of mine and sucking it up and getting the newer auto-off VIAIR one which costs as much as a portable compressor, for truck tires.

    As for air compressors unless you have shop air, like >6 SCFM @ 90 and >30 gallon tank, they are not really made for "high" pressure inflation. My 6 gallon takes around 5 minutes to fully inflate a flat truck tire to 80psi and that's way beyond its duty cycle, so in reality closer to 10 mins if you don't hate your tools. I have not used my 28 gallon compressor on tires but that's irrelevant cause it's not portable in any way.

    The DeWalt one is fine if you just do car tires occasionally.

      I use that as a house compressor (dusting with air and a shop vac is fast and comfy) but for when I don't feel like waiting I use CO2.

      Regulators are cheap and CO2 stores as liquid under pressure so a cylinder holds much more volume than compressed gas. I also use CO2 cylinders for MIG welding and collected extras so I never run out. Used prices are cheap with some looking.

      maybe because none of them are made with quality and, ignoring brand, are ultimately made in the same chinese manufacturing plant so they fall apart after a few months

    Those small things are useless. It takes 15-30 minutes just to fill up 1 tire if it doesn't catch fire first

            good for you. most low profile tires have less air volume than the size I mentioned. truck tires are big, your compressor must be really good if it can handle that. my buddy's small compressor couldn't handle more than 2 toyota mr2 tires, it started smoking.

            its been going for a year now of almost constant use on my own 3 cars and trucks, my family's cars and trucks, 3 atvs, multiple trailers, so for $70 I would be completely fine if it exploded tomorrow. It wont tho.

            Yes he is moronic like me. We both drive almost 20 year old BMWs after all.

            a bike pump works perfectly fine if you aren't a weak wristed gay. it's 6-8 pumps per PSI, not a big deal. I don't even own a compressor or inflator and don't want one.

            I was at the track and watched a guy wait for a makita battery compressor to fill up his tires and felt sad for him so I gave him my bicycle pump.

            I have this little Harbor Freight one. It does the job well enough and fits in the under-seat storage bin in the back of my truck, anything bigger wouldn't. I'll get a bigger shop compressor eventually but I'm moving soon, so not buying any more bulky stuff for a while.

            These are okay though. You can buy several and replace them as they wear out. Some even have an integrated deflator.

    lmao @ morons born yesterday killing their compressors by not even knowing what a duty cycle is
    on top of being so moronic that they don't realize OP wants SOMETHING PORTABLE

    even the portable 18V milwaukee and ryobi compressors (actual compressors, with tanks) are portable but still a terrible choice because DUTY CYCLE

    a good inflator can have a duty cycle of nearly an hour, no portable compressor in the world will ever have that cause they're completely different things made for different purposes

    i feel sorry for people like OP who expect to get real answers out of you mongoloids

    >yeah dude the obvious thing to do is just carry around a 50lb AC-voltage compressor and run a second alternator with the rectifier array removed to power it, DUH
    why would you even post such absurd drivel

    OP didn't even say what he's inflating or how often
    even the Harbor Freight Special is perfectly adequate for the needs of about 95% of car owners with low-volume low-pressure tires
    maybe OP drives a dually on 35s @ 100psi, we'll never know cause he didn't say

    best setup is having two compressors. get a large quiet shop compressor for home.

    when you’re out and about (track, touge, drag/whatever) i always have pic rel with me. ryobi 18v 1gal compressor. i paid $100 for mine on offerup. if you know how to work home depot, you can also get 4ah 18v batteries for as low as $25 for the base or $40 for the hp+ model

    A quiet 50-60lb piston air compressor for cars with a LONG boi hose.
    Motorcycles and bicycles get a normal high volume bike pump.
    For small cars/smaller tires the bike pump works great.

      I wish DeWalt would make a little one like that, they've got a chunky 20v one but I don't have space to keep it in my truck. I'm kinda tempted to cross the streams and have yellow 20v but red 12v since I don't have a 12v system yet.

    Pancake compressor with a digital tire pressure gauge or bust

    I've never had to worry about keeping my vehicles' tire pressure to spec at all times, and offer guests that if I can get their tires to spec too. Especially if they have a long way's drive.

    Sometimes shops will overinflate tires so it helps to have a digital gauge to quickly, easily, and accurately take pressure measurements.
