Well I wouldn't use one of those small air compressors that are just dedicated for air brush use. They only put out about 15 psi and is not enough to fill a tire. For airbrushing I use a regular type Campbell Housefield compressor with a 1.5 Hp motor and 7 gallon tank. That can fill up tires because it pumps the tank up to 100 psi. When I use it for airbrushing which is pretty much all I use it for anyway I set the regulator to about 15 psi. The compressor makes a racket filling the tank up but then I shut it off when I airbrush.

Those big air compressors should work theoratically but you need to add a pressure adjuster and a thing to seperate water. Of course some proper adaptors.

It called a regulator with a water trap.
