    What portable air compressors do you all recommend? I’ve been almost sold on the Viair 400P but reading just now it says it can only inflate a 35” tire up to 30psi. I’ve been looking all over and just not finding what I need. Help!

    Per their site, max working 150psi.

    As well, a 35" from 0 to 30psi takes 6min.

    That's what I read as well....but maybe I'm just overthinking it. You could easily cram 150psi in a small tire but I was reading it as all it could do is fill a 35" up to 30psi. Reading it differently, it could potential air up beyond 30psi, it would just take longer? The only reason I have any disbelief is because I've used some compressors in the past that when they get to a certain psi, they just can't pump anymore in....which was probably the "max working psi" if I'm understanding correctly. Again, probably just complicating things as usual, but I don't want to get out in the middle of nowhere without being able to air up/down properly.

    Masterflow here too. I have the cyclone. It's several years old and still going strong.

    I used 4 x Masterflow connected to 12 gal tanks on my Jeep XJ 33" tires and still not fast enough to air up my tire from 16 PSI to 30-35 PSI.

    I am now carry a portable 20 lbs CO2 bottle and happy so far. Uses it to air up tires and blown dust to setup a tent on the truck bed. It is portable so I also carry with me when taking the gen 2 out or put it in the moho.

    I’ve had the Viair 400p for over 3 years now. It works great to get my 35’s from around 20-40psi in short order. I think it only takes about 20 mins to do all 4 tires.
    Their claim of 0-30psi in 6 mins is just an example for timing not max psi. I fill my tires up to about 42psi with the Viair every time i get back on pavement.

    CO2 tank guy here as well.

    I even had the Kilby engine set up and it wasn’t as fast as CO2.

    For speed no doubt CO2 is the way to go.
    I just like the convenience of not having to fill a CO2 tank and just leave the compressor in the truck behind the back seat to use whenever needed.

    I picked this one up today. It's the ARB Single mounted in a plastic tool box called the CKMP12. Took a 33 inch tire from 36 to 40lb in about 30 seconds. 20180706_215438.jpg
    20180706_185154.jpg

    Then I added a tire repair kit and a digital gauge to the box. 20180706_195330.jpgI originally wanted to Mount the compressor in the engine bay but opted for the portable unit so that I could take it in any vehicle. I'm all in for about 400 bucks.

    I had been trying to use this little unit that I bought from O'Reilly's Auto Parts. It makes an okay jump box but it completely sucks as a compressor.

    Cool, I also like the one you quoted up above. Is it powder coated black maybe? I wonder what the cost is too. @itsdchz for reference.
