The CO2 setup that I have is my portable air source. Thus is why I asked if anyone knew where to get a CO2 tank filled. My trailer has been stored elsewhere and doesn't have access to power.

Instead of running around looking for awesome CO2, why don't you take the tire off the trailer and fill it.

Or are you looking for an excuse not to move it so your neighbors don't think the Clampets have moved in yet?

Or spend $30 for a portable air tank you can fill with your compressor.

Gotta stand behind skoots on this one. A CO2 tank is by far the best portable air source I have ever used. A small air tank is borderline for any full size tire. I too would not want to exchange my tanks for a trade in. I only get them filled.

You guys that are being sarcastic have probably never used one before. Why bother removing a tire or spend $30 on an air tank when (if available) he can fill his CO2 tank just as easily for half the price?

A portable co2 tank for the trail makes sense. Air down and not worry about where the closest service station is. To fill a trailer tire? Either a cheap cigarette litter compressor or just take it off and go to the gas station.

When I used to go circle track racing with friends, we had nitrogen tanks. Yes, very handy and will pop a tire on a bead no problem.

But seriously, a 12 volt compressor and a half hour will get the trailer tire filled. Why do some people overthink stuff?

Really? I've had trailers in storage that are parked next to other trailers. Getting a vehicle with a cigarette lighter close enough is hard to do and then you wait for 15 minutes for a little compressor to pump it up. It's a heck of a lot easier to walk up to the low/flat tire and air it up just as quickly as if it were in the garage within reach of a full size compressor. Again, he already owns the CO2 tank and taking the trip to fill it is less effort than dragging a jack out to the trailer, jacking it up, taking off the tire, taking it to fill/fix it & then the process of putting it back on the trailer.

I've been hard on skoots for some of his hair brained ideas but this one is spot on.

He's not over thinking it. He already owns the tank and if it were full, it would be the easiest way to fill the tire.

Yes, if it were full. But it's not. And places to fill CO2 on a Saturday aren't too plentiful. So he can run out a few gallons of gas and waste a couple hours trying to get the tank filled, or he could go to the trailer with a 12 volt comp and fill it in a half hour and be done.

Or, he could have checked his tank on Wednesday, so he would have a couple days to fill it before going to get the trailer. Or he could just blow into the valve stem.

I filled a flat tire on my motorhome (8.75x16.5) enough to drive to a gas station a mile away in about 10 minutes. Just giving an option when CO2 is not available.

Ditto on all that. Just don't agree with the co2 haters.

CO2 or nitrogen is great if you have it. Cheap too, compared to dragging a compressor to the track.

From now on, I'm referring to my penis as my 'cherry picker' too.

Seems like it works awesome.......on saturdays......when it's empty...


The fact that they are finite, and bulky are my two issues with them, but I think they are still good, for certain things.

But its useless scrap metal when you don't keep it full.
