Silly question time again....

does car foot pump put out equal volume as a track pump ? anyone care to guess, just that i don't have the fitting to fit my tire gauge to the small compressor at my house tonight and i really want to try and inflate these High Rollers tubeless on my new rims and cant wait to get to my other compressor as the missus will have the car for the next two nights :? (something that will be sorted this weekend - she gets her car back :thumbup: )

is it possible to rapid fill a tire using a foot pump ?

Add sealant later use a Presta valve with removed core
At garage you need a presta valve to schrader valve adapter like this IF you are going to use Presta valves . Less mess

can get on eBay for 80p

If you get to the petrol station and it won't inflate use the flat tyre function on the machine
