Tires are easily one of the most crucial parts of your car. However, many drivers don’t give them the attention they deserve. Keep in mind that poorly maintained tires are likely to lead to deadly or dangerous accidents and can have a negative impact on the vehicle’s handling.
Tires are probably the most important parts of a safe vehicle. This is mainly because the tires are the only part of your car that touches the roadway. Tires directly impact your car handling, braking, ride, and most importantly safety.
Having a flat tire is often one of the main inconveniences of driving. Yes, we have all been there. Although none of us likes getting a flat, nearly all drives like the opportunity to do a little detective work and solve the apparent mystery of the missing air!
Depending on what's most important to you, you should consider:
Power source - Masterflow has two options for powering our portable air compressors. Plug into a vehicle's power outlet (aka cigarette lighter) or connect directly to a vehicle battery. Be sure that your power outlet is rated for 15A/180W or you'll blow a fuse and instead should chose a compressor that powers from the vehicle's battery.
Use - All Masterflow air compressors are going to inflate tires, if you just want to top off your tires, you can use a smaller air compressor, if you're an off-roader and want to air up quickly, a larger compressor is going to do the job faster.
Tire size - Passenger vehicles/bike tires/motorcycle tires/mini pick up trucks will air up just fine with a smaller air compressor powered by the cigarette lighter (MF1035, MF1040 M1A1). Midsize tires on SUVs/RVs can use MF1050, MF1089, M240. For larger tires like tractor tires (35s and up) MF1089 will have you up and going in no time.
Inflation time - All Masterflow air compressors have super fast inflation times. However, if time is important to you, just remember, the bigger the motor, the faster the inflation time.
