I certainly hope so! I bought one and plan on running it up to 250psi all the time. I believe that the ratings on these tanks are conservative. Everyone here has the same kind of tanks and they are running them that high and higher. However, if it blows up and kills you, then it is not my fault!!!

it's all safety

so it doesn't mean if you go 1 pound over the limit it's gonna blow

i have put 400+ psi into the firestone tanks rated at 150

the tank wont blow up like a bomb, i really dont think that will happen, it would be more like a loud pop, or like the reation you get when you knock the regulator off a nitrogen bottle. i have mine to 300psi, i know people at 450-500psi

youll be fine, like joe said, watch the water/rust. when tanks go, they fuck shit up. where i used to work, they got the idea of hooking up a nitrogen bottle w/o a regulator and 'just cracking the bottle' well this setup also had home depot air tanks. it ruptured the tank, causing enough damage to where the bed needed to be replaced along with the rear of the cab.
