    <font color="green"> Worked for me, I'd guess that you'll be waiting around for quite some time for that thing to air up a tire. </font color>

    I wouldn't go with a compressor that's rated in cubic INCHES per minute.

    <font color="green"> The Quick-Air 2 is supposed to be one of the better mainstream electrics capable of airing tires up, but it's still a little pokey for larger tires. Oasis Off-Road makes a sweet compressor based on a York, but it's pricey. </font color>

    Keep searching. A key in these 12V compressor deals is the duty cycle - you need to be able to run the thing as long as you need to, and ONLY a 100% duty cycle compressor will allow you to do that. They're out there, I'll try to find a couple I bookmarked in the past and post them.

    I'm looking for an engine driven compressor, anybody know of a good one? It will go where my a/c compressor went.

    <font color="green">York 210s are the best for use as an air compressor, but you'll have to modify you mount or make a new one since they are not a rotary style pump like the stock one. I got mine on e-bay for $30. </font color>
