You talkin about a scuba tank? You have to have a high psi compressor to get them to 3000psi. When i worked for the local paintball field we had a compressor that could fill up to 6800psi.

oh i wasnt worried about it, i was just going to go to a local welding shop to have it filled..

a 15# tank would fill like 38, 35x1250-15 tires from 15-35psi and do it in 48 seconds each...

If you got 2 4500psi scuba tanks,1/2air lines,regulator,and fittings you could tear your truck down to the frame with air tools and still have enough air to fill 44s.

that would be fun, there was that guy selling a 15# tank a while back with the regulator and some tools that i wish i got.. it was about the price of the tank alone not including the regulator or tools :(

4500 scuba tanks are not cheap. Most air tools run best at 90psi right? I dont see why a regular 12v compressor wouldn't work.

the guy a poly performance said it would work.

idk what or how much a 4500 scuba tank is, the one i was looking at buying was one of the brands like powertank.

check craiglist on scuba tanks, you should be able to find one cheap. Rebola had sent me a parts list to convert a scuba to a co2 tank. I accidentally deleted it months ago.
