Default manual tire pump to fill the car tires?

I was wondering if I could just use a regular manual tire pump to fill the tires. Is this possible and something i could do? thanks!

Sure it's possible but if your starting from scratch with a completely flat tire, it will take forever to fill it up. A manual pump is ok if your just checking pressure and your need a pound or two to bring it up to spec.

I used to use on all the time - get a foot operated one, they're easier.

A few years back, I got a compressor for my birthday. I used to hand pump my tires, then gave up (twenty pumps per pound is silly). Now I just plug in the compressor, wait a few seconds, and fill up what needs filling.

Before I got the compressor, and after I got tired of a hand or foot pump, I would fill my tires at the local gas station for a quarter. That beat the hand pumping by a long shot. So, until you can get your own compressor, I'd go for the one at the gas station.
