12v aircompressor

Hi ! does anyone use a 12v air compressor while on the road that can run up to 110 PSI ? I just upgraded my tires to G-Rated tires but my little 12v compressor can't handle the pressure.

Any brand to consider ? would like to know if you tested it to 110 PSI because some listing online says 150PSI and when people try it they can't even get 100 PSI

thanks

Air Armor's M240 has a operating pressure of 120psi. They are on the pricy side, but it is in a nice self contained kit and works very well for the size. I haven't used mine for a anything big yet but it certainly works a whole lot better than the $50 Lowes one that died after 6 uses.

Gee after looking at that air armor I think you would be better off going with an inverter and 110 pancake compressor. I got one at Harbor Freight that works great does 120 psi and only cost $49.00

I bought a 12V compressor at Northern Tool (I think) that's labeled "Goodyear" that claims to put out 150#. I need 100# for the tires and the little guy does a pretty good job. But has a small volume so I've gotta be patient.

That is what I would like to have done, but the 2.5gal pancake compressor won't fit under the backseat of my truck.

I have one like this off amazon for $50.00 going on 5 years that is good to 150PSI. Compact and 12v.

Another option is this 120V option. https://www.amazon.com/PORTER-CABLE-.../dp/B006CVXGR0
