Choosing an Air Compressor Help

I'm just looking for a cheap air compressor that can efficiently air up my tires in my garage from 13psi to about 28 or 30 in a quick amount of time. I've got 33s. I plan to just have it in my garage and to be used to air up after I wheel. I don't know what I should really get. Harbor Freight has some good deals, but I need some one to help me go in the right direction. I was looking at about maybe 50 to 100 dollars. Also would it be more cost efficient to buy a tank and air compressor separate or just buy an air compressor that comes with a tank? I have no idea about what to do. Sorry if I'm confusing, thanks again.

Check out this thread. I've got one of the Masterflows, it's called a Tsunami. I got it at Pep Boys, They have a slower cheaper one so check it out.

I bought the one from Costco and it works great. Takes me about 5 min to air up my 33's from 14 psi to 30 psi.

I found an old compressor at a garage sale $10.00
I use it for tires - I have a big sears one for tools but the little works great - don't have to wait to fill up tires -

Look around at the garage sales or in the paper.

Found a MaxFlow Tsunami not too far away. Works great. Wouldn't have gotten such a great compact air compressor w/o the great info. Thanks again. Airs my 33/12.5/15 from 12 to 30 psi in about 3 minutes per tire of course.
