Rated 5 out of 5Â by deadidick well made
This compressor is rated for around 65 PSE This is enough pressure for any size tire, would even get a large truck tire inflated enough to get to a service facility.
There are lots of compressors that claim much higher pressure ( 350 ) PSE but the cubic ft. per min is more important. The 85 P is much higher in CFM which is what's needed to inflate a tire in reasonable time.

Pros-It's small enough to carry in your trunk right alongside your jumper cables for emergencies. It's easy and hassle free enough to use all the time instead of unrolling your garage compressors hose. Just plug it into the 12v socket in your vehicle. Has a built in psi gauge. On/off switch right at your fingertips. It's light, has rubber feet to prevent it from "walking" off during use. Have used it a bunch of times to adjust tire pressures on my 3 vehicles with no issues.
Cons- Takes a little longer to inflate tires than a service station or a 2 stage compressor. Wish the power chord was a few feet longer so you can get to both sides of the vehicle without unplugging.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by keithw Best portable compressor
I have bought a lot of junky portable compressors through the years, including the stuff at my local Home Depot store. This Viar compressor (available on homedepot.com but not in my local store) is far superior. Really really good.
Would suggest that Home Depot start stocking it in their local stores.

well made product, screw on air connection for valve stem -- better than other sytles which could damage expensive rims. Very long power cord.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by vito Fast and surprisingly quiet.
Well pleased with the 85P. I had a 120v inflator that worked well for many years until giving out. I wasn't sold on the 12 volt cigarette hookup, and the cord limitations. My way around that was a portable battery with an auto store cigarette lighter mounted on a carry platform. The fine print on the box says to have your car running and all that, but I have no issues doing my 4 cars,or 4 bikes.
Plus the straight threaded connector works nicer than the old inflator.
