Where are the best places to add and check air for tires?

I need something with easy access. Thanks.

Many large fuel stations have a separate area for airing up tires. I personally carry a 12V pump (Viaair 88P) and check/fill my tires where I am camped.

I do it any place where it's safe to park. I have an air pressure gauge for checking and a $50 12v compressor for adding air.

In your driveway, storage lot, or campsite. It's not a big investment to buy a tire gauge & a small air compressor (12V or 120V) and check/air up your tires in a safe, convenient spot, like those mentioned above.

You should check your tire pressures before hitting the road. I carry a small compressor with me. 110 volt. Those cheap 12 volt jobs usually won't cut it.

My $50 12v sLime compressor cuts it just fine. If I need to air up a tire at the side of the road, I don't have 110v available.

I carry a good pressure gauge and a human powered pump (bicycle pump).
