You get what you pay for. I got one from auto zone that's a pos slime brand I believe. It got me out of a few jams but doesn't work anymore at all.

Viair compressors have worked great for me. I have the 300P, it's reliable, fast, and built well. It's rated for up to 33" tires, however I believe it would do up to 35"s with out problems. They make portable systems like the one I purchased, as well as on-board systems. I picked mine up a while back from ORW in Temecula, Ca, for $120.

I will x2 the " ya get what ya pay for". Buy quality, buy once.

I would check out CO2 tanks if you havent. Lots of threads. I Just pieced together a setup from online sources for about $150 shipped. No parts to break, nothing wears out. Never needs replaced.

If looking for a portable 12v compressor, I would definitely recommend the VIAIR. They are quality units. Let me know if we can help you out at all. What size tires are you running?

The best compressor for the money by far is the MV50. There are a ton of threads here about it. You can get it for a decent price on Amazon.
