Virtually any air compressor will run a nailgun. They're about the lowest-consumption air tools you can get. I mean, a tiny pancake compressor might have issue with you using framing nailer like a madman, but, short of that, it doesn't matter all that much.
That's assuming you're only going to use it occasionally, though. If you're using it for heavy nailing on the regular, you might want to look into something larger. For smaller nailers or infrequent work, anything will work.
I'll admit I have no idea exactly what you mean by "take tires off", because I have no idea how you'd use an air compressor for that, exactly.
>>945138 My harbor frieght pancake only goes to 100 psi, i think. I seem to recall impacts need 150 or so and a hella bigger tank. I only use mine for filling tires, brad/staples and blowing shit out. I bet /o/ could be of help on this.
I got a twin tank 4 gallon harbor freight compressor. It's not the best due small tank size. You can use a impact tool with it but you couldn't use it very long. So I bought a five gallon air tank and hooked it to the compressor. Now I have a nine gallon compressor. One thing is good you can disconnect the five gallon tank and take it with you. To fill up a flat tire on a car thats on the side of the road.
>>945120 The biggest question here is how often are you using it.
If you're making your living off of it, go with a solid rep brand like an Ingersoll Rand...otherwise, really most anything from a big box store that matches the highest psi and cfm of the tools you plan to use it with. Not sure of Harbor Freight's compressor's reliability, but I can say that I've repaired a decent number of el cheapo compressors and I can say that those dozen or so were broken because the owner wasn't taking care of them for whatever that's worth.
Get this: http://www.harborfreight.com/21-gal-25-hp-125-psi-cast-iron-vertical-air-compressor-61454.html I've used one for a few years. Bonus points if you get a long ass hose (50'+). Plenty of power to run multiple nailguns all day, just be sure to lube them up regularly.
