>>If you decide to use one of the cheap compressors from Wal-Mart be prepared to wait a while!<<
Mr. Pugsley hits the nail on the head with this statement. I rarely hear folks mention the benefits of using a compressed CO2 canister for airing back up. I have shopped these and have run off road with a buddy who has a 10lb canister. What an outstanding option -- very quick and efficient for airing back up.
Purchasing compressed CO2 equipment from off-road supply stores/outlets can be pretty pricy, but I learned that you can purchase the same equipment from medical supply outlets for a significantly more reasonable price! I think my friend outfitted himself with the tank, hoses/fittings, regulator et al for under $150US -- maybe nominally better than that...I can't remember exactly, but it was a darned good price ;-). It's definitly an item that's on my "nice-to-haves" short list.
