    Say your tire hits 100 psi at the same time your air tank does. Now the tire has effectively become another air tank. So you just need to sit there and wait for the compressor to get the tank and the tire up to the psi you want. I aired up all ten tires on my truck the other day before I took it on it's first load. Some of the tires were down to 75 psi. Took me about thirty minutes!

    Unless your compressor is worn out it should be able to do the job. I have mine set to 130psi so cut in is 110. It takes a little less than a minute to put 10psi in a tire with the compressor pumping,using 3/8 line.

    You have to watch the Tire pass at Loves. More than once they’ve missed a stuck valve core. I’m not complaining, they installed a new one for free. But I caught it, the Guy who did the ore pass, didn’t really know much. Just best to check them yourself afterwards.
     
    062 and D.Tibbitt Thank this.

    My money is on their insurance company made them take out the air hoses. Somewhere within their chain I bet somebody blew up a tire while they were filling it up while they were right next to it and probably suffered an injury.

    TA petro is just greedy ###########. They want to make sure they can charge you to fill up your tires at the shop. I think its like $65 they want to check tire psi
     
    JC1971 Thanks this.
