    I keep a cheap 12 volt air compressor in my vehicle. I have a husky brand. The cigarette lighter end broke off so I put on a couple alligator clips for attaching to a battery. The husky is a cheap little outfit, I hear there are better units available.

    any thoughts?

    This is the one I want. Hoping Santa Wife maybe brings it for Christmas...

    ViAir 300
    They have some larger ones too and these won't overheat in 3 minutes and burn up in 5 like everyone of those 20-40 dollar ones I've owned.

    Viair has other models both cheaper and more expensive.

    Not your brand, but I have one. Lawn tractor tires are leaky. Pull up side my SUV and fill up the tires.

    Takes a while on truck tires, but it works. Tubing broke. Son fixed it while I was at work.

    Very handy thing it is. Can fill a tire long enough to get it to a tire store or back home.

    I wish I had a set of run-flat tires. Military and private security have run-flat tires.

    Wouldn't it be neat to have a bullet-proof vehicle wearing run-flat tires!

    I am not a fan of run flats. My wife's van came with run flat tires from new and they were literally down to the cords in 19k miles. To replace them at the time was going to be around $1000 plus mount and balance. Said to hell with that and put Yokohama's on for about $6-700 total and got about 32k out of those till completely shot and then put on a set of I think Coopers right now which are getting close to needing replaced with about 35-37K and think they were about the same $6-700.

    When I had my carry permit, I rarely carried. One of my sons had to make night-drops for the store in which he worked. When he made a bank trip, I was in a part of the parking lot where I could see everything and an overgrown field was at my six o'clock. I'd roll along the back perimeter and keep an eye on things. Was protecting my son, not myself. Something happens to my loved ones, I will suicide into the enemy. F this world, I'm ready to go and have been for a while now. I mean, brother, I do not care. Am at a place in life that people should just stay clear of me. If no one is bothering me, I'm just a little lamb (OK, so I can't frolic anymore).

    If I had run-flat tires, I'd treat them like studded snow tires -- I'd put them on when the need arose. Bug-out? Yes, that comes to mind. Post-SHTF, gosh, don't think I'll be doing much moving around unless it is an emergency. I have a library. That time will be a good time to re-read some books and dive into some books I've always wanted to read. Knock at the door = hit the floor. Movement in the corner of my eye, get ready to let the lead fly.
