    0.88CFM is pretty damn slow...

    look into the smittybilt compressor. it's decently priced up here in Canada $124 ish, and is fairly fast...I think around 2.4cfm

    I knew it wasn't going to be quick but glad I asked because it looks like there is way better options.

    Yes there are. If you want to go expensive. Go the co2 route. It's faster but you gave to have a tank and refill said tank once in a while. I believe it's called on board air, they are a vender here. Check the vender list.

    air compressor is something not to skimp on. the best way to learn that is driving home a hundred miles with 5 psi :)

    viair (for stand-alone units) and arb (for on-board) are my favorites.

    I think the one from Amazon list on post #5 would be a better deal for only about $15 more. That's the one I plan to get when my very old $20 Walmart special stop working. It's probably slower than the one at Harbr Freight. Of course these small compressors can be several hundreds of dollars. But even my POS will get me enough pressure, just takes a little longer.

    I used this harbor freight ...little guy as temporary solution for a trip to pismo for airing down and from 17 to 35 psi it was a little slow and definitely got hot ....but nothing crazy ....couple minutes a tire . Was worth it until I get the balls to wire up some switches for an arb onboard @granitemetaltaco
