You are probably right. This is ambient air that is compressed for breathing.

OK-miss read. Thought this was with an on-board compressor system. NOT a stand alone tank......SORRY
Still-No need to carry more than 200-250psi.

Really, it all depends on the tires volume.
Are they 'flat' or going from OR psi to street psi.
That's the why, I run a converted AC compressor with storage tank.
I can bring my 33's up to street psi in under 1 minute and run air tools all day long. This while the engine is just above idle at 1K rpm.

I would love to do the York OBA, but I doubt that I can justify the expense. I picked up this tank free from my VFD and was hoping to do something useful with it for little to no money.
