Track pump for tubeless tyres - recommendations?

Depends on both the tyres and rims and their respective variance from ISO-spec diameter more than the pump. Any track pump will seat tightly-toleranced tyres and rims, but if there's any loosemess even the best track pump won't cut the mustard. The various high-pressure stored volume tank-type pump things are a bloody good thing, and will often seat tyres that a track pump won't do, but they're not failsafe, and some particularly loose fitting tyre & rim sets will still defeat them.

There are two types of these things, integrated pump and separate pump. The integrated units are great if you don't already have a track pump; flick the outlet gate one way and it's open so the air you pump goes straight through the reservoir & into the tyre, or flick it the other way to close the outlet & you pump up the reservoir to high pressure, then open the gate to deliver a quick blast of air to the tyre.

If you already have a track pump, the non-integrated tanks are the way to go. Close the outlet gate, connect your pump to the inlet valve, and from there it's the same as above..

maybe just buying a compressor is an option... it'll do a bunch of other handy things too

Have a compressor already, it's big, old and I think it's not running right. At least I can pack the track pump into the car if needed.
