Default Shop Air Compressor?

Any suggestions on an air compressor for my home shop? I'll be using it for: simple griding, changing tires, light cutting. Nothing fancy.

Do I really need a 60 gal or is a 25 enough

You can never have enough air. A small die grinder or angle grinder will drain a 25 gallon in no time. I would go as big as your wiring or budget allows. Just my .02

I had a 30gal Craftsman for 5 years, did the job but rattled my brain when it ran (and it ran often) but it did the job. Die grinder would keep it running a lot.

I went to a Husky 60gal 240v job when that one blew up and I'm glad I did. I rebuilt the old one and gave it to my dad so he had something bigger to use.

As stated before, go with as big as your budget will allow. Any low volume or painting won't require much, but once you start grinding for any length of time or use any type of tool that spins alot of rpm your gonna wish you had more. If you think your ever going to sand blast, better consider a 2 stage with a 60/80 gallon tank. Better to spend a little more up front, then find out you wish you had it to begin with when your in the middle of something.
I've had a Quincy QT5 for 14 years, never regretted it.

I have a little 10 gal for portability and a 60 Gal Husky for the shop. My 60 is still a single stage and if I had it to do over again I would have went to the dual stage. If your going to make the investment for a big one definitely go with the dual stage then you won't be left wishing you had gone bigger after the fact. Die Grinders, Sanders, air nibblers, cut-off wheels, ect all use a pile of air.

I'll chime in and plead ignorance here. What does the dual stage get you? I have not researched enough yet. Was looking at the CH 60 gal from Lowe's against the same only Husky at Home Depot. I use 1/2" impact and die grinder on average say 5 hours per week.

Thanks - sorry to poach.

The dual stage gets you air built back up quicker. If you run a da sander alot you will want one for sure. The home depot/lowes 60 gal single stage will do most everything a do it yourselfer needs. Sure, there are times I wish I had more. I had a 30 gal craftsman for 15 years and its still running after all these years. Lots of shop time and even painted a few trucks with it. I now have a 60 gal lowes compressor. The extra volume is sweet and the bigger compressor is quicker and quieter.
