20lb C02 Setup. Forget an Air Compressor.

Welding shops have CO2, don't they? MIG shielding gas?

yes, welding shops can refill them....maybe even paintball stores

I have a 24# setup I'm about to install in my trail rig. If your AC doesn't work you could convert to OBA. Or checkout the viair systems.

Where is the best place to buy a CO2 tank system?

I was thinking of going with a VIAir setup. They don't seem to be very expensive.

I have the 1/2hp model. Works fantastic, I bought it used, never lets me down.
For the money it is probably one of my most value packed tools.

Re: Whats a good air compressor for my tires for a good deal??

It is portable enough that I have taken it on ATV trips. It has taken severe poundings bungie strapped to my rear rack and always fires right up, although it is way too much for my bikes electrical system it airs up an ATV tire so fast I don't care.
I use it for my 31's on my jeep, it takes a hair less than one smoke to fill my tires.

You wont run air tools on the vi-air kit without a HUGE tank and it wont air up tires as fast as CO2. Without a hhuge air tank, y o uare simply using the duty cycle of the compressor, which is tough on them. C02 takes 45 seconds or less to air a 35" tire from 10psi-30psi.

Maybe you can lease a tank from a welding shop?
Do you know anyone that works at a soda company that my be able to get one for you?

Whenever I set mine up, I plan to route copper pipe to all 4 wheel wells with quick connects and some type of cap to keep everything out of it until it is needed. This way I won't have to carry 50' of hose.
