i don't have airtools, but if i were to get the setup you're going for, a good floor jack, jack stands, compressor, and 1/2" drive impact wrench like an ingersoll-rand with sockets. no idea what capacity is needed for the air compressor though.

I'd recommend adding a good Torque Wrench to the list. Airtools are fine for quick removal of lug nuts, but to treat your rims/hubs and wheels right the T-W is a must. The Sears Micro-Torque goes on sale regularly.

The sears deal is a good deal. I got mine last year when they gave the Comressor, Air Ratchet, and Paint Sprayer for the $200 bucks. Now I see they offer the Impact Gun in place of the Ratchet.
