I have several different ones I use but they all work with no problem. The tires do require more pressure than your typical automobile tire perhaps your compressor is set to low? It does take a bit of force to hold it down when filling but nothing abnormal I believe.
I just used my little air compressor from Lowe's and didn't have any problems. I love that air compressor because you can set the pressure desired and it shuts off when completed. I set the rears at 72 psi and the front at 65 psi as the tag on the door recommends.
