Thats a tough one. You might just want to search Craigslist for a used bottle and regulator cause as far as I know thats the only safe way. You can alos install a 12volt compressor with a small tank like a 1/2 gallon.

I use a beverage regulator with a 20lb tank and it will fill up tires and run pneumatic tools. The regulators are relatively inexpensive and can be had new for 25-30 dollars. I bought my regulator used for 5 bucks at a swap meet. The main thing to watch out for when buying the regulator is that it is a 0-150psi or 0-100psi and not a 0-30psi. The higher pressure rating will help with seating beads as well as allow you to run air tools. The 20lb tank I have has lasted a long time including running a 1/4" die grinder used to clean off the gasket material on an axle housing and cover. If your just filling rhino tires in an emergency you could probably easily get away with a 5lb tank or even possibly a 2 1/2lb. The 2 1/2lb tank would be nice and compact and should have little issue seating a bead.

I wonder if a paint ball tank could be converted to attach a hose and tire chuck to would also need a regulator. I carry a 12VDC compressor I picked up for $30.00 bucks and it does a good job.

co2 is a liquid, do not try and fill the tank from your air compressor.

a 20# co2 tank full will net you roughly 8.74 cubic feet per pound or 174.80 cubic feet of content in the bottle.

a 20# cylinder is equivelent to roughly 50 cubic feet at 2015 psi of nitrogen or air - so if you filled the cylinder to 160# from your air compressor, you'd have about 4 cubic feet of air - you'd be pretty dissapointed with that.

Just a side note, I know most people like to use CO2 because its cheap, but its also corrosive - straight nitrogen is much better.

I picked up a Slime tire repair kit at Big Lots for $15 . It comes in a nice cordura nylon pouch with the velcro on the back fits perfectly out of the way under the dash behind my drink holder console and comes with a decent 12volt high volume cigarette lighter compressor .Tossed the included slime bottle and in the space it occupied put a tire plug needle , reamer , tire plugs , glue, valve stem wrench .

I made this and mounted it on top of my battery box. It has 4 small C02 canisters, with a bicycle addapter that I got off ebay for $8. I took a flat tire and filled it with four of the canisters, checking the psi after each one (each one adds 2 psi). Its not enough to fill the tire, but it would get me back to camp. The C02 is the same type used for my kids airsoft gun, so I figure if you had a large tank from a paintball gun, it should work as long as the top has the same thread pattern.

I saw this gadget at Lowes recently.

Would a 9 ounce bottle fill a couple of tires?

I just try to stay light (and I carry way to much crap)

Small compressor
CO2 bottles with adapter
Just use gasoline or a rachet strap to seat beads.
Compressor helps me air back up after rock crawling and works fast or if I notice a slow leak or after plugging the tire.
Spare stock tire mounted on a Grizzly aluminum wheel (very light)

Cost is cheap and weight is minimal.

20oz. paintball tanks work well. I use them for our air jack on the race car and keep one in the rhino. Can fill several tires with a bottle. I think the kit with the hose and quick disconnects and full bottle was about $40.

Not Cheap, but all the Power Tank stuff kicks butt. I like this little 20 oz. tank and bracket. This one is regulated at 30 PSI so it will not seat a tire, just fill it. You can get 2 to 3 rear tires out of it easy. They do have one with a regulator for more PSI, i use it on the Airlockers on the Jeep.
