There are some 300 psi 12v compressors on Ebay for less than $20.
the cheap ones run for about 10 mins before over heating. Sometimes they recover, sometimes they do not.

I highly recommend the Yellow one at Pepboys. Often times on sale for $25 Sometimes on sale for $20 You can always return to pepboys as well. It will run continuously for 6 truck tires (Load range E 245 75 R16 i think) from 30 psi to 90 psi without missing a beat. However, make sure that you outlet is up to snuff, these pumps draw a SOILD 15 amps at 12 volts.
