I have a question on tire inflators that is a little off subject, but I need help. Does anyone out there know how to refill the air cylinder for a 1970's collapsible spare tire and what pressure to set it to??????

I sold my M80 last winter, hated to see it go, but it was time for something else.

I got an Air Hawk Pro one year for Christmas. I've actually used it and it isn't bad. The plug that goes in the cig lighter will get pretty hot by the time your done, so beware of that.

The one I keep in the trunk of my daily is the kobalt brand tire inflator. It can be plugged into a cigarette lighter and house electric source also. I've had to use it couple of time on side of the road and in the middle of no where with no issues. Definitely recommend it especially if something goes wrong with it take it back to any lowes store.

I found the older model Slime inflator on sale. I hope it is as good as the reviews say.
