Can I get some suggestions where I can buy a good, cheap Air Pump to pump up my tires when they need it? I know that there are MANY cheap 12 Volt air pumps that work off a cars battery (or cigarette lighter), but I don't want one of them. I know there's upright hand pumps for use on bicycle tires (and maybe car tires), but I'm thinking about one that runs off standard 110 Volt house current.
Anyone know of inexpensive ones?
Thanks!

I thought I'd bring this question up again, since I didn't get many helpful suggestions the last time.

Everyone has a vehicle---how do you add air to your tires every couple of months when they need some?
Thanks!

Sell your car - you're obviously too stupid to own one.

I offered you a resonable suggestion of buying an air pump at home depot or lowes. So since you are asking again other than the suggestion I previously made, there are many gas stations that have air pumps. When my tires need air I go pay the dollar at the gas station air pump.

Thank you MUCH for your comment, LOLz!!! I'm much obliged.
P.S. I'm 79 years old, and I've had pretty poor luck using the free pumps at some of our local stations. Based on that, I'm reluctant to try using the pay ones.

If you are in fact 79 yrs old, I apologize for my previous and somewhat rude remark. If I knew who you were, I would come and fill your tires anytime you needed (no charge of course).

I do wonder though - what have you been doing about this for the last 60 years (at least) you have been driving?

The last car I had for 16 or 17 years, rarely needed air in the tires. Before that, just about all stations had the upright pumps on which a person set the pressure they wanted and it pretty much gave them that amount of air (that's free air). They recently removed the last one of those pumps from the Hess Station across from Dennys on Upper Front St., because it never worked right. I don't know of any more of those upright pumps, anywhere.

Thank you for your kind comment, Kerri G.

Dont listen to kerri, she will steal everything you have.

Go to Harbor Freights and get whats called a Pancake compressor for 59 dollars, there is many phnomatic tools you can use with it, the compressor is no more then 10 lbs in weight the size of a bowling bag.

If it doesn't come with a pressure gage built into the valve stem for filling tires then you will have to pick up one of those, they cost around 10 dollars, the compressor runs off from 110 volts and you wont be sorry that you bought one, good for many uses.

I have a portable Craftsmen air compressor that I bought at Sears. Its small but works fine. I would also suggest you purchase a digital tire pressure gauge. You can find one for less than $10 and they are far easier to read and more accurate than the cheap displacement scale type.

The Hess station by the Oakdale Mall has free air, and i've found their pressure setting to be accurate within 1 psi. I've also used the newer air pump stations at gas stations and found them accurate.

On a separate but related note, I was at Jiffy Lube recently, and one of the services they were trying to sell me was to refill my tires with Nitrogen gas. Talk about trying to fleece a dumb public. If anybody can tell me why this dumb, i'll stop posting on the next three of Kerri's dumb posts.

Donald, I urge you to read Kerri's thread on her pending eviction as she has already took advantage of another elderly gentleman's generousity. Read the thread where she asks for donations or the one where she asks for sponsors. Please be aware of what you maybe be in for if you accept her offer.

Thanks much for your post, Jack (and LOLz)! For anyone who might wonder, yes, I AM 79 years old.
The cost of a Compressor, or an Inflator is something that I must consider at length before making a purchase of one. Could you give me an idea of how much you paid for your Craftsman Compressor, Jack? Did it come equipped with all the necessary hoses and fittings to be able to inflate car tires? If not, did their cost total up to a considerable sum?
Thanks much, again!!!

You can buy portable air compressors for your car (comes in a little kit) for about $25. It's really handy and probably all you will need. Click the link...take a look.:)
