Keep in mind that ARB makes a portable air compressor. That's actually what I've been using. I think it cost me about $ 250.00.
It's 33% duty cycle. It takes me about 20 minutes to air back up, but that's better than nothing!

Get one of these

|Tdad||I've got one of these.I don't use it every weekend, but it works and it was only $50. It does get really hot after 4 tires, so you need to let it cool off before putting it away.|

I run a 20lb. Co2 tank in my rig. It can run air tools and fill up my 35's from about 8lbs to 28lbs. probably 5 times between tank re-fills, and only takes about 30 seconds a tire. Costs me 19 bucks a fill at a local place here in town.
It all depends on what you want and what you want to spend.

|Scoob||I run the York based system and love it. Airs up a 285/75R/16 from 10 to 28 pounds in right at a minute a tire. Also have the ability to run air tools, which is something very few electrics can do. However the electrics do cost less.|

|04moneypit||My dad runs a viair set up, the 450 I believe, with 35 in tires and thinks it was a waste of money. Not nearly as fast as they say, and I've seen it in action. Harbor Freight tools sells a similar pump, for a lot less money. I have a cheapy one I carry with me (cost $15), it's a little slow, but it works. York compressors are awesome units, nothing beats a belt driven unit. But you could get that portable CO2 tank thing, hear they work pretty good, but you have to refill them.|
