I've had this Sears inflator for 8 years and it has never let me down on a monthly basis.Since there have been a fair number of discussions around tire pressure I was curious as to what people are using to inflate their tires?
Years ago I had an inexpensive device to inflate my tires at home. It crapped out and I haven't replaced it.... This means that I rarely check the tire pressure.... of course it was set when I changed from summer to winter and winter to summer tires....by the tire shop.
With two new cars and expensive 19" tires on both I want to make sure I'm monitoring the pressure and preventing excess wear. And the best way to do that is at home given that you have to now pay for air at every gas station.
Thanks for any tips on units that work well at a reasonable cost.
I'm sure there might be something comparable but for $20 it has been the best Sears product I've ever purchased.
Sears alway have sales and this model can go as low as $15 on occasions.
Some of the reviews say it runs hot but that's only if you keep it on for like 15+min constantly... Duh.
Which means those fools haven't been maintaining their psi's!
Best feature is the digital setting which shuts the compressor off once you hit your desired psi. So no guessing or fear of overinflating. I always set this 2 lbs higher for the possbile air leakage from taking off it off the tire stem.
I keep it in the trunk and always regret I don't have it when I don't bring it! Very convenient to have. Very trustworthy and reliable.
