    Is it possible to pump the tires using the compressor without attaching the sealant bottle?

    Don’t have a flat just checking to see if it’s capable of just putting air in tires.

    Consider a floor-style bicycle pump? They're not difficult to use, no (electrical) power needed, and goes suprprising fast. I've even brought totally flat (just plug-repaired) tires back up to pressure, no problem. This is what I picked up about a year back, working well. Price is in CDN dollars:

    I picked up one of those micro pumps off amazon. I think I used mine once so far. Tiny but if needed have one. Its only a couple inches wide and have it wedged in with my spare tire: like this one off amazon: Billet Proof Designs Mini Portable Tire Inflator Air Pump
