Portable Air Compressor

I'm looking for a portable air compressor (electric) that will pump a motorhome tire (275/80 R22.5). I only talking 5 to 10lbs (low tire). This tire is rated at 120psi. Any suggestions?

I've had this one for a couple of years. Haven't used my big compressor since. Fits nice in my basement storage

I have that one as well. Once while out on a trip one tire was down to 10psi overnight due to a leaking valve stem. This compressor was able to get it back to full pressure and allow us to get to a tire shop for repairs. Took about 4-5 minutes.

It's easy enough to get 120 psi - cheap little 12v compressors can do that. They just don't produce any volume of air at high pressures, so it takes forever to add even a few psi to a big tire. Check the SCFM (Standard Cubic Feet/Minute) ratings at high pressures - it is common to state SCFM @ 90 psi. If it's at least 1.0 and preferable 2 or more, you can do a decent job of airing up those tires. That means one of the ones suggested by others so far, or something similar. Probably gonna cost you $100 or more.

Porter Cable pancake compressor from Lowes on sale last year for under a hundred dollars works great. And 50 times faster than any 12 volt jobs

Porter Cable compressor here also. Bolted it down in the back corner of my rear cargo area. Works great with a 50' lightweight air hose.
