    I see this is your first post. Welcome to the ----

    I believe any tire inflation kit will work on your new tires. I have the OEM one in my V Wagon and it has come in handy on the conventional tires on it.

    I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work for you. I had non runflats on an early C5 that I had and I bought a compressor and a plug kit at the auto parts store.

    We would need to know the exact tire inflator kit that you are talking about. What you would need to look for is the total volume of air that is supplied to the tire to supply the correct pressure.
