I was on wheelersoffroad and saw the 200H viair on board air pump. I was wondering if I HAVE to have a tank to pump up 33" tires or not? Also what type of electrical connections would I need to be able to run it?
I went with a compressor and tanks because I didn't want to have to load up a CO2 tank everytime I went wheeling and have to be concerned about running out or it freezing up in the winters here. The main reason though was I knew that when I needed air for something I wouldn't have the CO2 tank with me but I'd always have the compressor. I also use it for blowing up rafts etc and it's nice not to have to find a place to store it on the truck when wheeling and then have it sitting in the garage when you're not using it. Search the other threads and decide what matters most to you.GreenTaco4x4 said:I guess I am leaning towards CO2 now. Basically this is the problem: Don't like paying or finding gas stations with air. My bed box is full of tools and camping stuff along with half my ext. cab(have a 3 seater basically now). I can't put that stuff anywhere b/c I am at school and it is easy to have and store their. With CO2 when I get a bed bar I could make a point to strap down a CO2 tank right(along with CB, lights, hi-lift), there would be room?
I was wondering about the efficiency of such a set up verses a non belted pump such as the Vair or similar.tanKoma said:if u really wanna get hardcore and save some bucks over a electric, look into york AC compressors, they put out twice as much cfm as some of those viare's, only thing you have to fabricate a mount for it to be driven by the belts, though im not saying it will be a success, if ur new to this i would go with the CO2

DANG thats 1.87 per tire! I'd rather take a bit longer to fill, and since a lot of guys have pumps that your waiting for to finish filling up, might as well be filling yours too and save money in the long run.ShowStop said:Get yerself a CO2 tank. Those compressors run way slow and cost too damn much. I can fill all my tires in the time it takes those with compressors to fill just one or two. Yeah it costs money to refill the CO2, but $16 in CO2 fills over 30 tires.
I agree that it's more than I want to pay but you should check your math. It's closer to 50c per tire.Captkirkyota said:DANG thats 1.87 per tire!
