CO2 Tank Regulator

Would this regulator work for the type of system everyone uses for airing up tires?

Fittings don't appear like they'd mate up to the tank, but I'd expect it to be a low volume/welding type regulator. If it is, then it will frost up within a few seconds when trying to air up tires at that high of a flow-rate.

It looks like the back of the regulator says the max inlet pressure it is 300psi... A Co2 tank is going to have a 700-800psi so it would not work unfortunately.

I think this is the best deal I have seen for a regulator and is all you need for tires.

there are others too...

...but I personally run the Poly too. I saw a Westin one for 100psi that I am thinking of using with my power tools to prolong the tank though...I dont have air at home.

Soon to be a vendor!!!

couldn't you just opt to fill your tank w/ Nitrogen and avoid the freeze up issue? You'd get a lot less tire fills per tank but it may work out for the OP

This is a better regulator than Poly's in my opinion, regular air hose coupling, cheaper shipping:

I'm new to co2 air bottles - I have 35" tires and would be airing from trail 10lbs to road 28 lbs - about how many tires could be aired up with a 10lb bottle? Thanks!

I can air up 37's (all 4) 4 times with a 10lb tank. I weighed mine and its right around 2lbs give or take for a set. They won't put 10lbs in mine where I get it filled. Varies between 8-9lbs. They say it will blow the pops in the summer time. That would be a rush inside the rig..

Thats what I was thinking too. I couldn't get mine to air up that fast until I went with monster valves.

...took 3 days to get to Houston. The above fitting though, I think is by Westin, and it can be had in 100psi too.
