I believe it is good practice to make sure the tires are properly inflated.
In light of that, I am wondering whether I should buy an air inflator so I can
make sure that it is at the right pressure all the time.

I could do it in the gas station, but paying $0.5 everytime I do it eventually caught up with the price of the inflator.

Any comments ?

Thanks in advance.

yeah, if you have to pay, just get a cheap one. I think you can get one like 20 bucks now?
No need to get expensive one... the stock wheel doesn't lose air that easy. Just need to release some air when weather change from cold to hot, or put more air back when winter comes.
We don't need to pay in Canada... but I still buy one just in case if I got nailed.
Worth to buy one... but not the expensive one imo...

Damn you guys gotta pay to use a tyre/air inflator? That's gotta be a joke. How can people charge for a simple self-service necessity. :confused:

We don't get charge in Australia, such amenities are available at any service station for free. But I find the accuracy of service station air pumps to be quite inaccurate, often a few PSI off either more or less depending on how well the equipment is taken care of.

I personally have an air compressor along with many other pneumatic tools in my garage to cater for such basic maintenance. Those hand-held air inflators with a guage to measure the reading are quite ideal if you're constantly on the move or need accurate readings - (IE - Trackdays, Sprintdays).

Great idea, I've had to use an in car inflator 3 times now. The last one was on a long return trip from LA, temperature was about 108 F and about 150 miles from anywhere... saved my butt!

Thanks for all the advice....I am thinking of buying the Craftsman air inflator from Sears for around $20-$30. I guess it should do the job. : )
