Portable air tanks

Any recommendations one brands, size and configuration (horizontal vs. vertical)?

Iíll use it for single day track events and autocross. My car is an 1982 SC running 17Ē wheels.

Any suggestions are helpful.

Thanks

Hello - for a single track day, you can likely get away with a small tank like a 5 gallon setup. We're now carrying these tanks on site (link below). Please let us know if you have any questions and we'll be happy to help out.

For the track, my kids gave me this one for Xmas - I've had it charged to 100psi since Dec 27th without any leakage and it is sitting in an unheated garage at 32* - used once on wife's 255/50R19 (right front) and very happy with performance.

Honestly I used the one from Harbor Freight for years. ..but every time I filled it I did worry about myself... what it if blew up?

I'd go with the ones above if you don't want to "turn away" every time you fill it.

All the feedback is appreciated. Iíve read up on the offerings from numerous manufacturers. Seems like a good choice is an aluminum tank (light weight & wonít rust) made in the USA (seemingly better quality on welds/fabrication) with a 5-10lb capacity. Interestingly all the tanks have nearly identical hardware (valve, gauge, hose) which many replace with higher quality, more functional hardware.

Thanks again for the input.
